Lice Knowing You, a local lice removal company, will be in the Villa Theater after dismissal and will check your child’s head for signs of lice*, or demonstrate to you the right way to comb through your child’s hair to check for signs of lice. And they will answer your questions about various lice treatments. We encourage you to meet your child at 2:15 on Wednesday, December 7, and stop by the Theater for a demonstration or conversation, or head check, with Nancy Gordon and her team! Thank you Nancy for donating your time and expertise!
* If you would like your child’s head checked please comb out the hair first so hair is tangle free.
Lice are a regular, unavoidable part of the environment, and as a community, we can all help prevent the spread of by checking heads regularly throughout lice season.
“Combing is a scientifically reliable method to remove all lice and nits – which is another way to say it can end an infestation – literally. Combing is the safest and most cost effective approach that accomplishes what chemicals cannot. It enables families to be self-reliant, proactive, and preventive. It allows for regular screening and early detection which makes the combing approach even more practical and realistic.
While chemical treatments, pediculicides, and broad spectrum antibiotics develop resistance and potentially adverse health effects, nothing compares to the kindness of a comb.”
