Who’s my first call when I hear the word “l-i-c-e”? I call Ilene/Center for Lice Control and begin to breathe evenly. I know that Ilene will get back to me asap, set up a date for head checks in the school, talk with any concerned parents, and set us up on a wellness program with another head check as needed and proper instructions on “beating the beasts” both at home and in school. As a result—faculty/staff feel confident and attended to, parents acknowledge our pro-active stance and children feel cared for. It’s a win, win, win situation.
Ilene Steinberg and the Center for Lice Control has been an incredible help to Torah Academy. She has been professional in conducting lice checks. And when an "issue" is discovered, she happily and pleasantly goes above and beyond the call of duty to assist the child, parents and the school. Her being so proactive has helped to prevent lice outbreaks, as well as to reduce everyone's stress when a problem is discovered. I highly recommend her.
Our school recently had the privilege of welcoming The Center for Lice Control into our school! The speakers did an excellent job with both the children and the staff. It was great to see them interact with the kids and show them that lice is not as scary as we all think it is. The children were able to gain a better understanding of lice, all while having a great time! The staff learned a lot as well – we were probably more apprehensive than the children. We were able to see exactly what lice look like at each stage. It was great because many of us had thoughts about what they might look like but have never actually seen one before. We were able to ask many questions and Ilene answered them in an honest, helpful manner. We would definitely recommend the Center for Lice Control to anyone!
The Center for Lice Control provides several lice treatment and lice education options for schools, school nurses, parent organizations, and teachers. If a parent can’t pick their student up, we can treat head lice cases right in school and the student, now certified lice free, can return to class. We bill parents directly so this service is completely FREE to the school. We also offer a 10% courtesy discount to all educators.
We provide prevention programs which combine education with school-wide head checks. These programs are particularly effective for back-to-school nights or following a holiday break. Alternatively, we can provide your staff with full training and access to the KaPOW! line of products so you’ll be prepared when lice strike. No matter how you slice it, The Center for Lice Control should be your partner in the battle against lice. Fill out this quick form and we’ll provide a free consultation to help you craft a lice battle and prevention plan.
Open communication is key when dealing with lice. Parents and kids need to understand there is no shame in catching lice. Lice don’t discriminate. They like all sizes and shapes of heads and all colors and textures of hair. The best way to “Stop the Spread and Protect All Heads” is to speak openly and honestly about the problem and how to tackle it.
