  • Schools all over the state are seeing increases in cases of lice. As a friendly reminder, any student who has been treated for lice (including removing both live bugs and their eggs) should stop in at the office for a nit check before returning to class. Parents will be notified to pick up students found to have lice so they can be treated. Thank you for doing your part in preventing the spread of lice at LILA! ~ Jill Rosenthal, RN, LILA Health Services
