Usually there is a minor outbreak of lice at the local school, but from the notices they've been sending me, it sounds like this year's outbreak is major. They actually sent a notice asking for volunteers to do lice checks with a county nurse. According to another notice, this year over the counter remedies do not work. I was in the school the other day and saw that they had kids put their coats in plastic bags on their hooks, so lice wouldn't spread. I am in the school a lot, and come into contact with a lot of kids, so any tips on staying safe?
