Hartford, CT – August 28, 2019 – Lice Clinics of America, the world’s largest network of professional urgent care head lice treatment centers, announced that the company is launching its nationwide program titled ‘Schools Without Lice – National Educator Partnership’ in Danbury, Orange, and West Hartford. The program’s mission is to assist teachers and school nurses in being better prepared to help students in schools across America stay lice free.
Supplying the most up-to-date information and resources to nurses and educators about prevention and treatment options is key to helping them provide students with quick relief from the stress, fear, embarrassment, and discomfort of a head lice infestation. In addition to offering free access to educational materials, the program includes free lice screenings and treatments for school nurses and teachers.
“We’re very excited to launch this new program to help schools and educators in our communities better address the problem of lice,” said Stephanie Knecht, owner of Lice Clinics of America – Connecticut. “Lice are a real factor in the day-to-day life of schools and students, with kids missing up to 24 million school days each year due to lice. That’s tragic and needs to end. By providing free educational resources to schools and free lice care for teachers and school nurses, we hope they’re better able to help students and their families.”
