Are any other parents having issues with headlice? Why can't the nurses check and send kids home?

Isn't it just possible your kids could be the source?

The school system is not allowed to check for lice or to warn parents about it being in their school

The reason kids are getting meds, is because they are prescribed and sent to the school... Get real.. It's the only time they probably get it anyway.

Yea ur right about that but over half if them just need attention I am guessing u believe that all kids should be medicated as well and not be kids I feel sorry for anyone who's just want to dope their kids up a little attention is all mist of them need thank u very much

If you all really wanna knock it out of the ballpark with headlice, go buy the lice shield to prevent it. if the kids do get headlice, ask your pediatrician to write a prescription for ovide. it works the first time and last a while. we even use it for flea control

Like I said ...there's a thing called a drug store. If you are to stupid to check their heads yourself and you are too stupid to buy the shampoo then that's your problem.. there was a lice pandemic in Seabree back in 97 or 98 before I moved back to Henderson when I was 4 1/2. And they shut the whole school down for several kids who had it. They had to send ALL of the kids to the school bus garage to get their heads checked...and yes they had nurses there..it may run into money but they shut down for several days. It can happen. Drug stores carry over the counter lice shampoo and it kills all the eggs and live lice in the scalp. It shouldn't be that hard to do. Its better paying so much for a doctor do it. Just call your child's doctor and ask what they recommend.

This is the kind of topix that should be on this page. But I can see even with the good ones you still have some thats going to give people a smart ass reply. Yes head lice is bad this year. Had it three times already. They dont check the kids twice a year like they did when we were in school. If they happen to see someone scratching alot they will send them to the nurse and then home if she sees anything. They do not let anyone know with a one call.You cant just take care of it with 10.00 it cost about 60. To do your house and everyones head. Plus do it again in 7 to 10 days. The doctors office can give you a recipe for a home remedy of viniger and mineral oil. Good luck.

I don't know where your kids go to school, but one call sure did when it hit Chandler. I even notified the school when my child got lice in case they already didn't know.

The last time we had it after treatment I also got the lice shield shampoo and the spray that i put on every morning and we have not had it again.Cant say if it is because of those items or if someone got it under control. I also called the school after finding it and they said they had recieved several calls about it. This is at the middle school.

If u dont want to put those chemicals on ur child u can get a $10 bottle of tea tree oil an mix about half a teaspoon full with a jar of mayo, and half a cup of vinegar together put it on their head a wrap with a shower cap for two hours...while ur waiting it would be a good ideal to wash bedding and mix 8 to 10 drops in a spray bottle of water an use it to spray down furniture an mattress...stuff like that. Oh and putting 8 to 10 drops in ur shampoo will keep them from getting it again as long as u use it. Hope this helps!

The mayo and vinegar will make the eggs easier to get out an makes their hair conditioned and shine.

I think what a few people were trying to say was that after they have went through all of the expense to treat there child and home that when there children return to school. They were infected again which in return causes my self to have to leave work and start the process again. I don't mind doing any thing to keep my babies healthy and work very hard to do so but the monetary value alone is about $100 each incident. Not to mention messing work and every thing that comes along with that. I personally have 4 children 3 beautiful girls and my handsome little boy ( he Looks like his daddy. Haha ) and I love them with all of my heart and I stay very involved in there schooling and all aspects of their lives. I also would like to see the schools do more on their part so I don't have to bear all the cost repeatedly.
whatever
