Doctors say head lice should not bar kids from school
from HealthDay News via Medical Xpress
Outbreaks of head lice in kids can be effectively treated without banning infected children from school, new guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics say. In fact, the AAP believes that doctors and other health care professionals should educate schools and communities that "no-nit" policies are unfair and should not be implemented. Children found to have head lice or nits can finish the school day, be treated and return to school, the AAP says.
