It has come to my attention that there is a BIG lice problem in washington middle school. When I asked the school how can we, as parents, protect our kids from catching lice from other kids in school, they replied that the school doesnt check heads of all the kids. They do random checks of heads for kids that they get a complaint about, but thats it. They even replied that the parents are at fault if thier kids have lice and spread it.WELL, I am a parent that DOES check my kids' hair, and My kids have NEVER had lice! How is it fair that they can catch it from school when i keep my kids clean? I put them at risk for getting somethin so nasty because the school says they have to be there no matter what? So if some parents never check their kids' heads, and they have lice, then we (who do care) may have to suffer? Gym class is a very easy way to catch it as well. well parents if my child or your child, catches lice, then its our own fault. NOT

some schools need higher standards, but c'mon jamestown should try to earn a better rep, just like falconer or southwestern.

"What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

What about this makes no sense to you and is incoherent?

Speaking of WMS anyone out there hear that Emmerson brought back silent lunches? I don't get why they want the kids to be quiet then. Its the only down time they have. If they can socialize then maybe they won't try to so much when they need to be paying attention!

Emerson was awful when she was a teacher at persell. I highly doubt I'll send my kids there when the time comes if she is still in charge.

Call the superintendent office about lunches !! There is NO way people should have to eat lunch in Silence !!!!!

As for original post I would blame most of the parents also myself .. Most are dirtballs that don't care about the kids at all !! COD 4 that's where it is at NOT parenting C'mon ....

I read an article that said if you put a little hair spray on your child's head the lice will not be attracted to it!!

Why would you idiots be surprised? Washington Middle School is made up of kids from Ring and Love Schools.

I fail to see your point? What does that have to do with anything? Or are you saying that kids who go to those schools are dirty? You do know that quite a few doctors and prominent people in Jamestown have had their children go to Ring don't you?
And I agree if parents be sure to take care of the problem it goes away. And there are ways to prevent them. Hair spray special shampoos made to repel them. Also being sure to stay on top of checking if you know there is an outbreak.

Lice prefer clean hair asshat! What's that tell you? The people who DON'T check their kids hair send them off to school with bugs and then the CLEAN hair ends up with the head lice!
The problem is, is that rather than buying the proper shampoo people do idiotic things like using mayo and Vaseline to "kill" them and hair spray to ward them off and not treat it properly. Invest, treat, pick, retreat (if needed) and educate your child!!! Then check your child's head, it's easier, cheaper and less time consuming to be proactive than reactive....

You can still be in a prominent position and be dirty. Those kids are so filthy that go there if you punched them all you would see is a cloud of dust.

You have a lot of experience with lice. Does it itch when it crawls around your snatch.

Not really Ross, I spent a lot of time involved with PTA, volunteering, and spending time in the schools while my children where there. I noticed a child with head lice and asked the school about their policy, when I found out they were reactive rather than proactive I educated myself on the topic so I could assist other parents that had questions and concerns. Thanks for asking though ;)

Really? My kids aren't dirty. They go there. All of them have and I've never had ANYONE say they were dirty. Grow up + don't pick on kids or talk crap about things you know nothing about!

My kids go there too and I can assure you they are always clean! As a matter of fact I can't think of to many kids that could really be labeled as "dirty".
