Kids With Lice Should Still Go To School

School is right around the corner which means that kids coming home with lice is also right around the corner. Typically if a child is found to have lice they are sent home for treatment.  The American Academy of Pediatrics is trying to change that rule.  They say there is typically no need for the child to miss class if they have lice.
Head lice are not a health hazard or a sign of poor hygiene and, in contrast to body lice, are not responsible for the spread of any disease. No healthy child should be excluded from or miss school because of head lice, and no-nit policies for return to school should be abandoned.
