Memphis School Lice Policy
Consistent with the recommendations of the NPA schools head lice policy, schools in Memphis, Tennessee have a “no nit” policy and stipulate that “Students may not attend school with head lice.
“While my wife was on an extended business trip, I received a notice from my children’s school that there was a lice outbreak among the fifth and sixth grade classes. The notice included some tips on how to detect lice. I followed the instructions very carefully, and I concluded that my fifth grader, Noelle, was in the clear. Obviously, I really didn’t know what to look for- just five days later, she was sent home with live bugs and nits which I had obviously missed. Noelle was sure I couldn’t help at this point, and she was insistent that she could not miss any school time. She knew that her friend Sandra had been treated in her home, so I called Sandra’s mom and she told me about LiceDoctors. I called that afternoon, and by nine P.M., Noelle was in the clear, and the technician walked me through the simple follow-up plan that ensured that no nits that were too small at the time of treatment would develop into lice. I absolutely recommend LiceDoctors for their professionalism and competence.” – John T., Germantown,TN
“My daughter, Alex, was due to start her first day of kindergarten and we saw her scratching her head. With great hesitation, I checked her head and my fears were confirmed: Alex had head lice. Since school was starting two days later, we knew we could not waste time trying out drug store products, especially since I had heard that they don’t work well. We called the pediatrician who referred us to LiceDoctors. All we can say is that you showed up at our house and worked so diligently to clear Alex so she could go to school. She had been so excited about her first day at “big girl” school and she was able to go day 1 and we had no further lice incidence. Thank you so much.” – Heather W. in Memphis, Tennessee
“Laura, the nurse from LiceDoctors was the best! I emailed them late at night and received a call first thing the next morning. She was at my house that afternoon. She was calming, meticulous and a life saver! She taught me how to make sure to keep the lice away. I would highly recommend it!” – Robin O. In Memphis, Tennessee, Yelp, 5 stars
“I thought you would appreciate knowing what a tremendous job that Debra did in treating my 3 girls who had head lice. The girls, ages 2,4, and 7 are very active and I really struggled to get them to sit still. I am not sure if you use some kind of magic fairy dust, but Debra got my kids to sit like little angels. Best of all, she combed through their hair and cleared away the bugs and eggs. She has taken a huge weight off my shoulders and I will recommend LiceDoctors to all my daughters’ friends.” – Leanne S. in Memphis, Tennessee
“After my daughter had an allergic reaction to the prescription product that our doctor recommended, I didn’t know what to do. The drug store products had failed and I was thinking of shaving her head. She was frantic and I was desperate. Fortunately, she came home from school with the name of your company. I did not even know that there was such a service as LiceDoctors provides. It would not be an understatement to say that you literally saved our sanity. Thanks to you my daughter doesn’t hate me and is lice free! Thank you and God bless,” – Theresa L.from Cordova, TN
“Thanks so much to y’all at LiceDoctors for getting my family cleaned up. No more eggs or lice in the hair. We were on the brink of I don’t know what but after months of trying to get rid of the lice, we just didn’t know what to do. Finding you on the Internet was a stroke of luck and we are so thankful. Kids are still clear 3 months later. Amazing!” – Burt G in Olive Branch, Mississippi
LiceDoctors Helps You Get the Facts on Lice
Recently, Anita, who is a LiceDoctors technician in the Memphis area, finished extracting the lice and nits from a family in Germantown and sat down to review a simple do-it-yourself follow-up plan with them. The parents said that they had done a lot of research on the Internet and felt confident that they knew quite a bit about head lice. As Anita began to talk about some of the facts of lice and what the family should do to protect themselves from a future re-infestation, it became clear that they had learned a lot of misleading information online. Based on that conversation, we developed a short questionnaire that might illustrate for you common lice fallacies and what the correct answers are. Here is an excerpt:
1. Who is more likely to have head lice?
a) a child with long hair who keeps it pinned up in a bun?
b) a child with short hair?
This is a tricky one. The answer is the odds of getting lice are about the same here as long as the long hair is pinned up. The goal is to make the hair as difficult as possible for the lice to find and climb up. If the child with long hair comes to school with her hair down,then she is a more likely target for lice than someone with short hair.
2. African American children are immune to lice.
The answer is false. The reason that African-Americans get lice relatively less frequently than other races is because of the common usage of gels and styling products. These styling lotions actually make it harder for the lice to grip onto the hair.
3. Several members of the softball team got head lice. What should you do with the helmets? (Note 2 answers are correct).
a) Throw them out.
b) Put helmets away for a day and any lice on them will die.
c) Spray them with a lice pesticide.
d) Wipe them clean with soap and water.
The correct answers are b and d. Lice need human blood in order to survive; they can not last longer than a day on an inanimate object like a helmet. You can also take water and soap and wipe the helmet clean and use it right away. Do not spray lice pesticides on anything; it is unnecessary and may have toxic side effects. The most important action to take when lice have spread among team players is to delouse the heads. Unless you do that, you will continue to have a lice problem on the team.
Remember if you have head lice and you are in the Memphis area call LiceDoctors any time of the day or evening at 901-305-8819. An experienced lice technician will make a house call to you at your convenience.
