The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) both say children should not be kept out of school if they have head lice. Also some schools have no-nit policies and some schools don’t. So this leads to parents feeling stressed out and not understanding their options for lice treatment. Here is a direct quote from the CDC website:
“Both the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) advocate that “no-nit” policies should be discontinued. “No-nit” policies that require a child to be free of nits before they can return to schools should be discontinued for the following reasons:
Many nits are more than ¼ inch from the scalp. Such nits are usually not viable and very unlikely to hatch to become crawling lice, or may in fact be empty shells, also known as ‘casings’.
Nits are cemented to hair shafts and are very unlikely to be transferred successfully to other people.
The burden of unnecessary absenteeism to the students, families and communities far outweighs the risks associated with head lice.
Misdiagnosis of nits is very common during nit checks conducted by nonmedical personnel.”
