It is not life that gives you perspective, it is lice…

Lice also take your children out of class on the suspicion of head lice. In fact, nothing scars and traumatizes a child more than being ousted in a class full of children for having head lice. Yet we have been seeing this happen in many schools and classrooms throughout Winter Park!

Who is to blame for this callous behavior towards school going children who also have lice? It isn’t ‘who’ so much as a ‘what’… the no-nit policy has ruined more childhoods than even OTC chemical based shampoos!

No-Nit Policy – Healthy Standard for Lice Removal

Issued by the National Pediculosis Association, the no-nit policy is considered as a public health standard that parents need to follow. Complete adherence to this standard will ensure their children remain lice-free and in school!

Common Cause of Head Lice: Direct Head-to-Head Contact

Children love to put their heads together when playing. Teenagers love taking selfies, smiling in pictures and not being aware of a possible head lice infestation.

Pediculosis or head lice are one of the most common communicable childhood conditions, without any knowledge of how this scourge evolved. There is a lot to lose for parents considering 6-12 million people catch head lice every year, majority of them being school going children!

What does the no-nit policy mean, in simple terms?

Implementing No-Nit Policy In Schools –Is That Troubling for Parents?

As per guidelines set by the no-nit policy, implementation of this health standard in schools is thought to minimize head lice infestations.

These pesky creatures are already a public health issue but implementation of this policy ensures children with head lice are unable to attend school until the pest is eradicated completely.

Established Guidelines

Every family has an important role to play when it comes to head lice inspection and removal especially in public and childcare settings. The no-nit policy encourages parents to take part with the following at home:

  • Early lice detection
  • Routine screening
  • Accurate lice and nit identification
  • Thorough lice and nits removal

Additionally, the policy lays emphasis on some useful strategies that will help minimize lice infestations and outbreaks in school. Keeping abreast of these strategies will ensure your children remain free from lice and in school!

The strategies are:

  • Proactive community lice education
  • Routine screening/inspection and early detection
  • Manual removal of nits and lice
  • Temporary dismissal of children with head lice
