Boynton Beach and Delray Beach are in the Palm Beach County School District and, therefore, stick to a strict “no nit” policy for head lice in the school. This means students are excluded from attending if any signs of lice, including eggs or nits, are found.
PALM BEACH COUNTY
Response to Identified Infestations
The principal is responsible for ensuring that contact with the student's parent/guardian has been attempted and for excluding from school any student who is found to have lice or nits, as soon as is practically possible or at the end of the school day. All reasonable efforts will be made to prevent close contact of affected students with others until dismissal.
The principal will permit the re-admission of any students after they are determined to be free of lice or nits by the school nurse or assigned designee.
Persistent problems will be referred, by the school nurse or principal’s designee, to appropriate agencies for assistance.
