Resources for Preventing the Spread of Lice

We need your help in preventing the spread of lice! Read more about head lice here. Despite popular belief, lice/nits can live in any hair texture, length, etc. Please check your child’s hair daily for lice/nits.

If lice or nits are found, please contact your homeroom teacher and Chantel Nelson – chantel.nelson@themuseumschool.org – as soon as possible. Your child(ren) may return after they have been treated and re-checked by front office staff. There are many professionals around the area that guarantee lice free heads after your visit. Click here to learn more information about lice from one of our trusted lice removal experts and another local expert.

Though head lice survive less than 1–2 days if they fall off a person and cannot feed, we are being extra cautious in our classrooms by reducing carpet, bean bag, and rug time and asking students to avoid head to head contact with classmates.

Lice Prevention Kits for Sale

The PTO is selling lice prevention kits after hosting Lice Doctors at the first general PTO meeting. While there is no product you can buy that will kill lice in all stages of their life cycle, it is possible to deter lice from inhabiting hair and if lice/nits are present to remove them manually with a quality nit comb.

Order forms for lice kits consisting of repellent spray (distilled water, tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil & lavender oil) and Terminator nit comb were sent home in folders of elementary school students. Middle school families may purchase kits on the My School Anywhere site or email tms.pto@themuseumschool.org for a printable order form. Orders will be delivered through your child’s backpack.

Cost: comb-$9, 4 oz repellent spray-$7, both comb & spray-$15

Note: If you find nits, nymphs or adult lice in your child’s hair, please contact the school immediately.
