  2. If a student is discharged on Friday, students are expected to treat and remove the lice and nits during the two weekend days.

  3. Parents must accompany the student into the nurse's station upon return to school to be checked and cleared to return to class.

  4. Students may not ride the bus after being discharged for lice until they have been cleared by the Nurse.
