Today's Wall Street Journal article on Lice ("A Head Scratcher: How To Get Rid of a Pesky Parasite" page D1), reminded me of a bunch of websites and services our school nurse told us about during lice "episodes" this spring at school. Keep these resources handy if your kids will be in elementary school in the fall. See website above for basic information.
