Coral Springs schools, like all schools in Broward County, has a “no nit” lice policy. Children with head lice or nits are not allowed to stay in school.

Excused Absences

"Students must be in school unless the absence has been permitted or excused for one of the reasons listed below (F.S. 1003.24(4), 1003.26)…..

8. Students having, or suspected of having, a communicable disease or infestation which can be transmitted are to be excluded from school and are not allowed to return to school until they no longer present a health hazard (F.S. 1003.22). Examples of communicable diseases and infestations include, but are not limited to, fleas, head lice, ringworm, impetigo and scabies. Students are allowed a maximum of five excused days absence for each infestation of head lice.”

It can be very frustrating for parents to try to eradicate head lice on your own, especially when your child is not allowed to return to school until he or she has no signs of the infestation. If you are in need of professional assistance, in the privacy and convenience of your home, you have come to the right place.
