My daughter is in kindergarten. I use a special shampoo on her that prevents lice from going to her head and I always look for lice when I see her scraching her head. Luckily, no lice yet!
Anyway, I picked her up from school yesterday and there were 2 other girls- one was scraching her her very roughly and I actually saw lice walking on the other girl's head!!
I talked to the teacher and she said that there are some kids with lice in the class and their parents know but haven't done anything about it. Shouldn't the school make the parents stop this? When I was a kid kids with lice weren't allow to go to school until they were clean!

It depends on how big an issue it is in your area. If lots of kids have it, the school can't send them all home. It's not about budget at our school. It's about #1 we needs the school so they will learn and #2 parents refuse to come pick the kids up. If only a few get it a year then they can send them home.
I teach at a school with a HUGE lice problem. There is really nothing we can do about the fact that some parents just don't bother with it. The good news is the only kids who have really chronic problems are the ones whose parents don't treat the lice.Â
