Knock wood I haven't had to deal with that, yet. I get the letters home every year that it has shown up in the classroom, but so far my girls haven't got them. I do add tea tree oil to their shampoo every time I get a letter though, I've been told that helps so I keep doing it but I really don't know how much it really works.
i get all itchy just thinking about it! Ive never had it, but my sister got it twice! my mom did something with vinegar and cooking oil then a plastic bag on your head, i guess its supposed to smoother them all to death
Lol, a post about it showed up in my newsfeed today and I keep itching since. I saw something going around with coconut oil which I'm guessing is similar to the cooking oil, and I've heard about tea tree oil.

I've never had it, neither have my brothers, and as far as I remember, nobody in any of my classes ever got it....
I did however work at summer camp, and we did 'head checks' each week as kids arrived. There were a few times I saw foster parents drop off kids with freshly shaved heads, including girls... I will never forget one of the girl's application photos she had beautiful long hair, and she cried every single day at camp because she didn't want anyone to see her without her hair... she kept saying she would have rather not come to camp, than have her head shaved. It was devastating to watch! For kids that were somehow missed by the head checks, we just gave them a shampoo with the stuff from the drugstore, and picked nits for an afternoon
