  • We would like to take this opportunity to provide some up-to-date information about head lice. There have been multiple questions about lice recently, and we find that there is valuable information out there for parents to have regarding lice. There is really no such thing as an outbreak of lice. Lice are carried by persons and need a human host to live. Lice do not fly, jump, hop, or skip. Lice carry many negative connotations, and the most up to date information helps to dispel the many myths that surround this topic. Lice carry no diseases just make people itch and uncomfortable until they are treated. Lice are carried by a person, and that person feels marked, can feel humiliated, and bad for being singled out. School transmission is rare, and research states the only way to give lice to someone is by prolonged head-to-head contact.
