Public elementary schools in Texas are required to notify parents within five days if a student in their child’s class has head lice.
The state law, implemented in September 2017, requires schools to send home the notice to the parents and may not identify the child with head lice.
The notice must include recommendations to treat and prevent head lice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The law, Senate Bill 1566 (p 12-13), requires schools to notify parents of the affected child within 48 hours once a nurse or administrator determines or becomes aware that the child has head lice.
