Ok…this will be an interesting ride. Poor Kevin…
If you sleep with dogs…
You’re going to have to say goodbye to your little friends.
Kevin getting set up to lose the moptop? And has he been sharing with Miles?
Uh, oh. Kevin’s more nits than usual today…
Origin story of lice man! Like Superman but lice
Now my head itches.
So I believe an apology is in order from the teacher.
Why are teachers always drawn as if they are a subspecies of trolls? My English teacher in high school was a babe.
Shouldn’t the school nurse be doing that outside?
Kevin has head lice!
Kevin has a social disease. NO! not that kind!…
What a lousy development.
One kid’s got ’em – it spreads quickly!
Yes! New comics!
My son came home from kindergarten one day and told me that some kid at school had headlights. He showed me the paper that they’d sent home advising parents, and I realized he was talking about head lice.
Poor Kevin. Hard to characterize this as a victory, but, Ha! I can’t wait to see what he looks like with a shaved head. Will Miles shave his too in solidarity?
I wonder if this is the origin story for the term cooties. Though I think cooties probably predates head lice, what with the prevalence of icky little girls.
So many teachers are so clueless about things that should be basic for anyone dealing with kids
That’s a hairy situation.
Oh oh.. the entire class, maybe the entire school will have to be checked. Coats, jacket, sweaters….. My two girls when they were small ended up with head lice. Got them from a some kids they were playing with at a girl friend’s apartment place when we visited. Had my two girls stay in the bath tub when I discovered them on in their hair giving them their nightly bath. The lice must have just hatched. I went to the drug store, got the shampoo, combs and then went to the hardware store to get the sprays, etc. Gave my girls the full treatment. Shampooed their hair, used the comb to remove as many nits as possible. Trimmed their hair as well. I washed all their bed the living room, etc. Inspected hubby… not much there as he was balding, but still….. Had hubby use the lice shampoo.. Then I took a shower with the shampoo……Afterwards every time my scalp itched I freaked out. But I never had them in my scalp. I crawled into bed about 2 AM.. Called work and left a message I wasn’t coming in that morning……. What a nightmare.
The last time my kids had a round of head lice we went through seventy-five pounds of laundry detergent trying to wash everything, again and again and again. My high schooler blamed her brother in elementary school for constantly reinfecting everybody. Turns out they were using headphones in the language department at the high school without ever inspecting them—until enough of those teens found out it wasn’t just their own head. The head of the department sent out a mass email and apologized to everybody. Writing this in case it helps anybody else out there track down a source.
