HEAD LICE

Montgomery County Public Schools follows a "no live lice" practice: any student with confirmed live lice must be excluded from school until properly treated at home and re-checked by an MCPS nurse to ensure all live lice have been removed. In addition, students with no recent history of lice who are found to have multiple nits may be sent home for treatment at the nurse’s discretion.
