• In order for the child to be readmitted to school following a live head lice infestation, he/she must be checked, have no live lice, and have a statement signed by the parent/guardian that treatment was completed. If no nits are found, further rechecking will not be done. If nits are found, the student will be readmitted and rechecked in 8-10 days. If live lice are found, the student will not be readmitted and the entire procedure will need to be repeated.
