Custom Boarding School Lice Prevention and Treatment Packages
A lice infestation at a boarding school requires comprehensive treatment given the close proximity of students in the dormitories. My custom boarding school lice treatment package will provide effective and efficient lice removal.
The First Step is Lice and Nit Removal
The first step is to check the infected students and evaluate the extent of the infestation and develop an action plan. At this time, an all-natural lice killing treatment will be applied for those students who have active lice or nits. Each student’s head will be thoroughly examined, strand by strand, removing all dead lice and approximately 90% of the nits (eggs) during the first check. In one week I will return to remove the remaining 10% of the nits. We start by combing with a metal nit comb to remove the dead lice and nits. Next, we go through the hair strand by strand to get any nits the comb may have missed. We end with an olive oil treatment that will stay on overnight. Its soothing to the scalp and will smoother and nits that were too small to see. (It is always recommended to check students that come in close contact with the infected students, such as roommates, teammates, siblings or close friends.)
Next, we educate the students of the life cycle of lice
It’s important that boarding students understand their role in taking care of their personal belongings to reduce the risk of reinfestation. Bedding should be stripped daily and placed in the dryer on high heat along with anything that touches their person. Towels, backpacks, clothing, jackets are to name a few.
Finally, I make sure students know how to complete the treatment
To ensure complete treatment and lice elimination, I provide each student with the understanding and practical steps they need to take. Students will be given an instruction card explaining tasks that should be done on a daily basis for the next 2 weeks.
How much does it cost?
Parents will be billed directly for Lice and Nit removal services. The cost is $200 for the first two hours, then $75/hr for any additional hours. Rechecks are a flat rate of $150 per trip. Head checks for other students such as roommates, teammates and siblings are $7 / per head (this is just to determine if there is lice or not).
