Children are back  in the classroom in just a few weeks and itchy lice will likely tag along. The American Academy of Pediatrics has released a new report stating that keeping your healthy child out of class to avoid catching lice is not recommended.

The Cameron County Health Department tells NewsCenter 23 that individual school districts will continue to have jurisdiction on their "no-nit" policies under the guidance of physicians contracted out to each district. The AAP suggest parents and children continue taking preventative measures to avoid getting lice in the first place.
