Atlantic County schools have a "no nit" policy which means students will not be admitted to school unto all lice eggs have been removed from the hair. " If a student is found to have head lice or nits, he/she will be sent home to be treated."
Whereas many school districts across the country are moving away from “no nit” school lice policies, which prohibit children with lice eggs from entering school, some schools in the Panhandle region of Florida retain “no nit” policies.
Some people with head lice itch; others do not! People often ask us if they can have head lice even though they have no symptoms. Truthfully, most people with head lice feel itchy. But not everyone has symptoms. In fact, one person may have a scalp filled with lice feeding off of it, while another person may have only one bug. Strangely, the person who has several lice, may not feel itchy at all, while the person with one louse may feel tremendously itchy. The reason for that is that itchiness is caused by a reaction to the saliva injected into your scalp by the bug.
