Boaz City School Policy is to send a student home if found to have live Lice. If the student has Nits only, a letter will be sent home with the student at the end of the day. Upon returning to school the parent or guardian should bring the student to the office to be cleared to return to class. This will be done by the school nurse or another school staff member.
Head lice can be a nuisance but they have not been shown to spread disease. Personal hygiene or cleanliness in the home or school has nothing to do with getting head lice.
