The Ottawa Hills School District has revised the policy on head lice in accordance with changes from the Centers for Disease Control, superintendent Kevin Miller said.
He assured residents, "We don't have trouble with head lice here. It's almost a moot point."
Lice are spread by person-to-person contact; diagnosis is made by "finding a live nymph or adult louse on the scalp or hair of a person," according to the CDC.
Mr. Miller said the district's policy change reflects the CDC wording.
