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.

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.
