Before you know it, it’ll be time for kids to go back to school, which means there’s a greater chance for a lice outbreak. If a student does get lice, many schools have no-nit policies in place that require the infected child to be cleared of nits, which can take several weeks depending on the treatment. But there are ways for school administrators, teachers and nurses to prevent lice problems before they happen with lice screenings at school. Here’s how Licenders can help prevent a lice outbreak at your school:
Trusted provider of school screenings
With six locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Connecticut and Long Island, Licenders currently services more than 100 schools with routine lice screenings. Our team of 40 experienced, knowledgeable clinicians can provide screenings for a large volume of students, which is why we are the #1 trusted lice screening service for schools in the Tri-state area.
Frequent lice screenings at schools
We are available to service schools if there is a suspected lice infestation. However, while we do same-day emergency service screenings, we recommend that school administrators schedule lice screenings several times a year starting at the beginning of the school year to prevent a lice infestation before it happens.
No cost to your school
If the cost for lice screenings is a concern for your school, there’s no need to worry. Licenders is the NYC Department of Education’s official lice removal service for public schools in the Tri-state area and will pay for lice screenings at your school. This financial assistance makes it easier for administrators to plan ahead and schedule routine lice screenings with Licenders.
We love keeping kids lice free
We understand the ordeal that a lice outbreak can cause students, their parents and school administrators missed time from work and instruction, as well as embarrassment, which is why providing effective screenings and treatments that are safe for children is our priority. Our treatments are 100 percent free of pesticides and harmful ingredients and are incredibly effective in just one session. Screening processes and treatments from Licenders are also designed to make kids as comfortable as possible during the process.
