“What is Colorado’s school policy regarding head lice and nit removal?  My friend’s kids got into school with nits in their hair and at my kids’ school, the nurse won’t let them in with any nits even though I have done head lice treatments on them.”  Marie D. in Denver, Colorado Each state has its own guidelines regarding allowing children back into school with head lice or nits.  Some schools have a “no nit” while other schools do not.  According to guidelines published in 2004 by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, children who have had a head lice treatment “should not be excluded from school if nits are present (“no-nit” policies are discouraged). Nits found on the hair shaft more than a quarter inch from the scalp are likely already hatched or dead.”  Since this is not a mandate but rather a recommendation, some schools have stricter head lice guidelines than do others.  Denver School Lice Policies May Be Different From Surrounding Areas

Different Schools  - Different Head Lice Policies

Regardless of the school’s policy regarding lice and nit removal, we at LiceDoctors recommend that you bring in the professionals to treat head lice. The reason that many children continue to have nits and live bugs in their hair is that the head lice have mutated and many have developed a resistance to the chemicals in both OTC and prescription lice removal products. In Denver and surrounding areas, you can reach LiceDoctors at 720-292-1991.
