CSB Mulls No-Lice Policy Change

The Coeur d'Alene School Board is re-considering the district's no-lice policy. A recommendation is on the table that would allow children back into class even when nits are still present if the parents can show they have followed recommended treatment.  Several organizations, including the CDC state that is is best to keep children in school as opposed to being at home due to lice. This is a departure from most parents' and teachers' understanding of how to deal with lice. According to a district source, most parents do not want nits present in the classroom. Yet, the source said, the medical viewpoint is that this is okay.

Question: Should the Coeur d'Alene School District loosen its no-lice policy?
