Baytown (Goose Creek Consolidated Independent School District)

Students with live bugs will not be permitted in school, while children who have only nits may remain.

“In 2013, the Texas Department of State Health Services removed Pediculosis from its list of conditions requiring exclusion from school. Students found to be symptomatic of live lice infestation will be assessed by school nurse. Students found to have evidence of live lice will be excluded from school.”  Source Goose Creek Consolidated SD Handbook
