Part III


When I attended elementary school back in the late 80’s, it was not uncommon for the school nurse to visit classrooms and check children’s hair for head lice. If the nurse did detect head lice on an individual they would be sent home until successfully treated in order to not spread head lice to other children. It seems that in this day in age checks and restrictions for children with headlice have became much more relaxed. Please follow the link and read the article.

Now answer the question: Should kids with head lice be allowed at school?
