Scott County Health Department and the Scott County Decategorization Program have worked together with staff from the Scott County school districts and non-public schools to revise head lice guidelines. In 2008, the guidelines were released and approved by the superintendents from all four Scott County school districts. The guidelines were based on national best practices and research.
This information was designed to be family friendly and sensitive to individual needs. The number one goal of these guidelines is to support families and keep kids where they need to be…in school!
