Galena Park ISD Head Lice Policy
Here are the defined Lice Policies for the Galena Park ISD. Click on the links to see full detail.
Head lice, although not an illness or a disease, is very common among children and is spread very easily through head-to-head contact during play, sports, or nap time and when children share things like brushes, combs, hats, and headphones.
Based upon specialized training and the professional judgement of the school nurse, students with live lice or signs of active infestation will be excluded from school. Students who have been sent home should receive prompt treatment for lice and expected to return to school the following day, free of live organisms.
Parents should check their child weekly for head lice. If head lice are found, the hair must be treated before the child returns to school on the following day. Upon return to school, the student and parent/guardian must report directly to the school nurse, provide information about the treatment utilized and have the student’s hair checked before reporting to class.
We can help with any questions, concerns, or treatments. Call with any questions.
