Re-Occurrences of Headlice in School

It has come to our attention that some parents are failing to treat their children’s hair completely after they have discovered headlice on their head.  It is imperative that as soon as headlice are discovered, hair is treated with a specific medical preparation or homeopathic shampoo (eucalyptus oil is recommended) to get rid of the adult lice before the child returns to school.  Following this, daily applications of conditioner and then combing through the hair to continue to remove the lice eggs is essential to ensure that the headlice are completely eradicated.  If this procedure is not followed, headlice will continue to flourish in school, putting the continued well-being of the children in school at risk.
