    The following policy and procedure has been set forth to safeguard the students and personnel form an epidemic of Pediculosis (lice).

    Any student or personnel with signs of pediculi or an extreme number of nits (eggs) will be immediately excluded from school until all nits and pediculi are gone. When nits are found, the student will be excluded beginning the following day until all nits are gone. The individual will be readmitted to school only after health department personnel has checked and released him/her. The Moore Public Schools nurse will recheck this individual periodically for the possibility of re-infestation. Should a re-infestation occur, the individual will again be excluded from school and the above policy will be in effect.

    Absences will be excused for up to forty-eight (48) hours to treat and clear head lice with appropriate documentation from the health department.
