Found a louse (singular of lice) on DD this weekend. We did chemical &a physical treatments, the combing, and cleaned the house. I notified preschool by email.

I am so ashamed (and grossed out). DH did drop off for me, which did not go smoothly. The teacher was not happy and didn't want DD back for a week. The director was called and she verified that it's just a no nit policy. DD was checked and allowed back. I hope they are treating her ok. Her preschool teachers use shame more than I would like on a day to day basis and shame is so tied with lice.

I am dreading pickup today knowing there's going to be a sign about lice and that all the kids will be inspected.

Anyone survive lice and/or being patient zero at preschool?
