Why did the Sacramento City Unified School District change its Lice Management Guidelines in the 2018-2019 school year?
The Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD) has recently changed its lice management guidelines. In the 2018 school year nurses began working on the revision. You may wonder why. This is to explain the reason for the change and help you understand why this does NOT put your child at more risk for getting head lice.
Under a new state law (SB 277) effective January 1, parents may no longer cite personal beliefs to exempt their children from vaccines required for school. Most families will not be affected by the new law because their children have received all required vaccinations.
Personal beliefs exemptions on file for a child already attending child care will NO LONGER BE VALID when enrolling into kindergarten, including transitional kindergarten (Early Kinder).
