Revised –
Head lice are a frequent occurrence, particularly in elementary school. It is defined as a parasitic infestation of the hair on the head and is characterized by itching of the scalp as the result of live lice in the hair or ova (nits) attached to the hair shafts. Pediculosis is transmitted by direct contact with infested persons, their clothing, and/or personal articles. Head lice are highly transmissible and require aggressive management.

The Pacific Grove Unified School District is committed to doing everything possible to prevent the spread of lice in the schools.
