Pembroke Pines School Lice Policies

Pembroke Pines Schools

Pembroke Pines schools have an official lice policy that forbids children with an active head lice infestation, which includes bugs and eggs, from attending school. The “no nit” lice policy was reinstated in 2014 after a brief hiatus in which the county attempted to allow children with nits to attend school, but this was met with resistance from parents.

“County schools reversed a decision to allow students with head lice to remain in school. Outraged parents and teachers flooded the school district with emails, calls and letters after the decision.

Now, students with head lice or nits in their hair will not be allowed in school as the policy was prior to the change, reported the Sun Sentinel.

The Broward School District had decided, in March, to allow students to stay in school based upon recommendations from the American Association of Pediatrics, The National Association of School Nurses, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The information said there is no disease associated with head lice and in-school transmission is considered to be rare.

Health groups had argued while lice can be a nuisance, it’s not a public health threat. School district officials also worried children were missing too many days of school…” Source: Broward School District
