Head Lice

Head Lice is a common community problem. Everyone is susceptible to head lice. They can be a nuisance but have not been shown to spread disease. Personal hygiene or cleanliness in the home or school has nothing to do with getting head lice. APS school nurses follow recommendations from the New Mexico Department of Health for identifying students with lice infestations and treatment recommendations.

Students diagnosed with live head lice are not sent home early from school. Their parents are notified and the student can return to school once appropriate treatment has begun. Routine classroom checks for head lice and parent notification of exposure to head lice are not done by the school nurse unless 3 or more students have identified with active head lice in the same classroom.

More information on identification and treatment of Head Lice can be found on the CDC web site.

Contact your Public Health Office if you need help in obtaining treatment shampoo for your child/family.

APS Nursing does not recommend any specific treatment method for head lice. If you have been unsuccessful in removing head lice, it is best to contact your provider to discuss treatment options. YouTube has informational videos on line that provides information on head lice removal techniques and treatments. You can view these videos by clicking here.
