Students with viable nits are not permitted to stay in school.
“Students will be checked for head lice by the school nurse when demonstrating symptoms of infestation. Parents of students with live lice or an active infestation will be asked to pick up their child as soon as possible to begin the treatment process. The student may return to school only after the hair has been treated appropriately and the parent presents proof of treatment.”
LiceDoctors understands how hair-raising it can be when your child is not readmitted to school due to head lice. We will dispatch a technician to your home and we guarantee that your child will be clear and ready to attend school the next day. Give us a call in the Bethesda area at 240-720-7491 and we will come to you when you need us day or night.
