Cambridge Public Schools Cambridge Schools have a progressive lice policy in keeping with recommendations from the American Association of Pediatrics and the National School Nurses Association. Children with head lice will not be sent home from school. “Pediculosis (Head Lice): Children need not be excluded or sent home early from school because of head lice. The school nurse will contact parents/guardians of affected children to inform them that their children must be properly treated and may return to school on the day after treatment.
Schools in Dearborn and Taylor do not have “no nit” head lice policies adhering to the current trend that advocates that those policies are ineffective at preventing or containing outbreaks of head lice.
