Just curious.. Does the elementary send children home with head lice? I was told today by a teacher that there was head lice going around and the counselor or nurse told her since it is not life threatening they do not send that child home!! Is this true? That spreads very quickly. They should b sent home to b treated. If it were my child with it I would want to b informed right away to get it taken care of.

This has been an ongoing controversial issue with head lice. Each state and school district have differing policies. Check with your school nurse for the policy. Arm your child with a good mint based prevention spray and a metal lice comb, keep hair tied back and teach themhow it is transmitted-through head to head contact and less by sharing hats, helmets and brushes. But best not to share these items. Also beware of outside school activities, it is passed around a these activities also.

Well that's a bunch of BS!! Not only because its spreads so quickly but they should think of how the child that has it feels. I'm sure it's awful.

Add tea tree oil into shampoo/conditioner, hairspray as a preventative.

the tea tree oil is awesome, just a couple of drops in their shampoo and it keeps the nasty little varmints out, and a bottle of the oil will last you a long time.
