Head Lice Information for Parents

Recently, we were asked about the frequency of head lice in schools. According to IDENTIFYUS, there is one infested child in a school group of 100 children in the kindergarten through 4th grades. On average, about 1% of children have head lice in North America. You can help us reduce head lice in our schools by learning about how to treat and prevent lice.
