The Maury County School District does not have a no-nit lice policy. Students should be clear of live bugs before returning to school.
Head Lice (Pediculosis) can be a nuisance, but they have not been shown to spread disease. Personal hygiene or cleanliness in the home has nothing to do with getting head lice. Check your child’s hair periodically for lice. Treat head lice with either an over- the- counter product or prescription product. Please notify your school if your child has head lice. Nits may persist, but successful treatment should kill crawling lice. Please bring proof of treatment such as a box top or bottle from the special lice shampoo when your child returns to school. The parent or a responsible adult MUST bring the child to school to be checked by a school official. The child must return home with the parent or responsible adult if he or she still has live lice. Contact your school nurse for questions about head lice.
Not only will LiceDoctors in the Spring Hill and Columbia area eradicate live bugs, your technician will remove all visible nits at the time of service and provide a follow up plan to ensure all of the eggs are addressed. Your child is guaranteed to be able to return to school after the lice treatment with LiceDoctors. Call us at 615-953-0047.
