Don't know who you are talking about and don't care. Lice isn't from filth. It's an opportunistic little parasite that can be picked up when trying on clothes for heavens sake! Even new clothes that someone else has tried on.

It is not the schools fault. Seems you are blaming them. A lot of schools have it at some point. They do check kids when one in a room has been found to have it. It is up to the parents to stay on top of this.
I just do not see how you could blame the schools.

Be happy it is not bedbugs. Lice has always been a problem in schools but at least it is a problem that can be resolved quickly.

I went through this problem in the 80ís not everyone always follows procedures.other things that can create problems is the bugs are becoming resistant to the shampoos. Lice self pregnate and all it takes is for one egg to hatch out and you still have your problem. Shampoos donít always penetrate eggs. Beats me why some schools allow kids back in with nits and some donít. My problem was they werenít checking a neighborhood kid which also sat next to my child on the bus. This kid moved in from another city and had problems frequently, health department stepped in. They now have lice clinics but Iím wondering why the public canít buy the machine themselves.

Years ago DDT was used and they were kept more under control until it was banned, so it was more rare to encounter it.

I guess it would be to much of a burden and expense to check every new student who enters a school and do periodic head checks on everyone. Some people because of shame keep it hidden so as a result people arnít warned to check who their sit or play with. Just call the school nurse and let them know theyíre not allowed to give out names. There classroom and kids they sit with on bus should be checked give them the names of neighborhood kids they play with also. If you donít do this then the odds are great it might come back to haunt you. Theyíre also suppose to clean lockers and classroom.

When my daughter was attending Carlisle primary school she pretty much had it for 3 years. I called the nurse and asked if they still did head checks. I was told that once a month they would pick 1 random kid from each grade. I had treated her so often that her louse were immune to everything, the nurse even brought stuff to my house to try.I gave her names of the neighborhood kids that I knew for a fact had it but had junkie parents that didnt care. My friend was babysitting the other day and was going to braid the little girls hair. As soon as sje started she had to stop bc the amount of adult bugs crawling around. We slathered her head with coconut oil for 4hrs and it didn't phase them at all. I went to cvs bought the giant bottle of hand sanitizer and again covered her head the little bastards died instantly. It doesn't effect the "nit glue" but tea tree oil does. So do yourself a favor and buy a cheap bottle of tea tree oil and pour it into the shampoo bottle use it regularly and lice will no longer be an issue. Sorry for the long post but I wanted to share a method that has never failed me, and in case you're wondering the sanitizer dries quickly and leaves your hair feeling super soft and clean.
