I think # 2 is totally wrong, then let's have sick kids in school too, lice are a total nuisance and can bring high discomfort and time consuming consequences in the whole household.The sanitation process you have to go through is extensive and the regular checks on the hair for the two weeks after you use the medicated shampoo is so time consuming. It is not fair to cause this to the other families!!!!!! Plus it is not cheap to treat either and no insurance pays for that !!! I think schools should have a once a year prevention presentation to parents and kids, most of the times kids go to school without knowing they have lice that is how they spread anyway.
My kids had it and I took my pediatrician three checks before figuring it out! And I actually pointed out a clear tiny bug moving on her hair, he finally concluded that she had lice! You have to diagnose it yourself just with the signs of itchiness and redness also on your neck, I have never had lice so I knew anything about it… Prevention and good Information is key!!!

people believe him, he is out to destroy us a little bit at a time. He has already took away the desire to work from the ones that like hand outs, now he is deciding about our health insurance. I am sure if Pelosi was on the obamacare insurance she would not have voted for it. How stupid are the people in the senate

It is better than any other place in the world. I have had great health insurance which I pay for before the great one came up with obamacare. Why don't the politicians have this insurance

It is America's shame that 50 million can't afford health insurance! Just because you are OK, don't ignore those that are not! It was long overdue to enact healthcare coverage for us- it should be a single payer like Medicare but the republicons insisted on changes and now that they got it, they are trying to defeat the only sensible legislation we had in years!

Did anyone ever inform you that the president is just one guy- yeah, he has his finger on the button but he doesn't make all of the laws and deadbeats have been around forever.
Stop judging and start thinking- you might be amazed if you consider for a moment that you may be wrong.

apparently you voted for the horses ass in the white house. this man is not qualified to be president. he has pissed off our allies, bowed to the saudis and wants to arm jhaid in syria. but everyone loves santa claus don't they -- until they see the bill.
Obama makes Carter look good, and if you old enough to remember Carter -- thanks to him we have problems in the Mid East -- and no one else
