Head Lice

Buncombe County Board of Education treats all students who are infested with parasites with respect and dignity while addressing their issues. Students with Capitis (head lice and nits) must be kept out of school until they are effectively treated and the live lice are removed. The treatment package (minus the contents) must be brought to school with the child on their first day back so that the child can be re-checked.  Once deemed clear, the child will be allowed to return to school.
