KISD Head Lice Procedures
For students found to have live adult lice infestation, school clinic personnel will:
  • Exclude student immediately.
  • School clinic personnel will re-check excluded students on the following school day for live adult lice to determine effective treatment, and again one week later (based on life cycle of louse).
  • The school nurse retains authority to exclude a child with repeated infestations where there is evidence of inadequate treatment. 
  • Students found to have nits greater than 1/4 inch from the scalp but no live adult lice infestation will not be excluded. Student will be monitored weekly by the school nurse.
