Galloway Township Public School has a "No Nit" head lice policy. This means any student identified with head lice must be sent home to be treated for the removal of all head lice and nits.
The student may return to school only if accompanied by the PARENT/GUARDIAN and is brought to the SCHOOL NURSE to be checked. If there is no evidence of head lice or nits the student may return to class.
