    Head Lice Information

    Infection control experts have determined that head lice are not a health hazard and are not responsible for the spread of any disease. Thus, infestation is principally a nuisance rather than a major threat to the student's well-being. Approaches to treating and controlling the spread of head lice have evolved over the years and continue to evolve. Immediate or long-term exclusion is no longer recommended.
