  • Getting Down to the Nitty Gritty:
    Top 10 Surprising Truths About Head Lice
    Is your head itchy, yet? There’s nothing like just the mention of lice to provoke parental anxiety that borders on hysteria in even the best of us. Unfortunately, much of this panic is based on fear and lack of knowledge. The good news is, PVSD has done their research and created a policy (Board Policy 5141.33) in line with a study published in Pediatrics: The Official Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Just in case you like reading medical journals, we’ve provided you with the link here. However, if you'd like a quick way to clear the hair- we mean air- on the topic of head lice; check our TOP TRUTHS —we think you should read them all, but we really like #1, #2, and #9…and remember, when a child has lice—it’s extra important to BE NICE!
