Sherry Marbury, state supervisor for the Alabama Department of Education, stated that she "does not expect the debate over how to handle head lice in schools to end any time soon." Schools across the country are becoming more lenient with respect to admission to school with lice or nits (eggs).
Irvine’s policy deviates substantially and is the strictest one we found. It reads as such: “Any student found to have head lice, detected by a live louse or lice eggs (nits),will be removed from the classroom and excluded from attendance. The parent will receive written instructions on the treatment of head lice and a verification of treatment form that must be signed by the parent before the student can be readmitted.
In the Anchorage school district, children are allowed to stay in school until the end of the day if live lice are found. This is consistent with recommendations from the American Association of Pediatrics.
Concord schools generally allow children with nits to return to school after treatment. If a child is found to have live bugs or nits prior to treatment he or she will be sent home to receive treatment. "Keep children home from school when suspected or known head lice. Please notify the health office if you suspect your child has head lice.
School Lice Policy Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Surrounding AreasSchool lice policies in the Milwaukee area vary. Some schools retain “no nit” policies, while others have loosened their criteria and allow students to return to school with nits after treatment.
Ten Tips of What NOT TO DO and One Tip of What TO DO to Get Rid of Head Lice
Do not expect chemicals to kill the lice--this is a mistake that many people make. Unfortunately, lice have mutated over the years and many have morphed into what are now called "super lice". These lice are highly resistant to pesticides and are the source of a lot of frustration to families who try to kill them with chemicals that do not work.

"Rona is an angel! I was absolutely freaking out after my son got it for the second time from school- and turns out I had them as well. After several ineffective chemical treatments it made so much more sense to call LiceDoctors and I'm so so glad I did."

"First time I have dealt with head lice. I had never heard of this business, and was referred by a friend of the owner. They scheduled promptly and were very flexible. I called on Tuesday evening and scheduled for Wednesday morning at 7am. She made it to our home right on time, set up quickly, and was very pleasant to work with!"

"The day finally came that I had dreaded... Lice! We discovered our unwanted guests and immediately fell into panic. I was so relieved to see that a 7:30 am call the next day had Sean at our door not too much later. He took great care of us and made sure to educate me along the way. Thanks so much!"
"LiceDoctors is fantastic! After 2 months of fighting lice in our house (repeatedly washing sheets, stuffed animals, over-the-counter treatments), I finally researched professional help. The woman that came to help us was amazing! She was there within 24 hours - came right to our house, and treated both of my girls."
"I absolutely love LiceDoctors. My technician Mary came out to my apartment in Racine and she was super friendly and treatment was 100 percent effective!"
"I’m a pediatrician and I know from 20 years of seeing patients that the chemical shampoos do not work. I did not have the time, patience, or a good treatment plan to do it myself so when my daughters got lice, I called LiceDoctors. I highly recommend them."
