STEP 2: LICE/NIT REMOVAL

During the treatment process, the technician will comb through the hair with Nit Picky's professional removal process. This process will remove the lice and the nits (lice eggs).

Texas State Law and School Policies Addressing Head Lice: Laws, Rules, and Policies
There is no law in Texas that addresses excluding children with head lice from school. DSHS does not have authority to impose a set policy about head lice on school districts. However, DSHS does urge school districts to ensure that its policies and procedures do not cause children to miss class unnecessarily. In addition, school districts’ policies and procedures should not encourage the embarrassment and isolation of students who suffer from repeated cases of head lice.
Lice are not a public health threat. They do not carry disease. Therefore, the Department of State Health Services does not monitor or track cases of head lice. It is up to each school district to create head lice policies and procedures, if they so choose…and some do. Talk to the school nurse or someone else in charge to find out what the school policy and procedures are in your school district. Refer to the topic "Setting Policies for Schools" that appears on this page for policy suggestions.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) states from a 2010 research study on head lice, the number one key point in the study: "No healthy child should be excluded from or allowed to miss school time because of head lice. No-nit policies for return to school should be abandoned." Information for schools is located at the end of the study article.

A “no nit” policy is one that excludes students from school based on the presence of lice eggs whether or not live lice are present. The Department of State Health Services (DSHS) does not recommend a “no nit” policy. We do recognize, however, that school districts may adopt one as a local option.
Head lice infestation is a social issue not a health threat. “No nit” policies place a disproportionate amount of emphasis on head lice management than on real health concerns which should be a higher priority. This over-emphasis can lead to unproductive use of time by school staff and parents, missed classes, unnecessary absences, and parents missing work.
Setting Policies for School Districts
Creating school district policies and procedures should be a joint effort with the district’s School Health Advisory Council, local health care providers, district administrators, school nurses, parents and other stakeholders. Remember, there is no Texas law that addresses head lice. School districts and campuses can create their own guidelines by developing written policies that:
Considerations for Policy Development
When developing policy, consider the following:
You may also want to address the following:
1. How the school/district may want to address those families that cannot afford to pay for the treatment to rid their child of lice.
2. Care in the classroom to prevent the spread of head lice.
3. In-service training for school staff.
