A local elementary school is dealing with a lice problem with students for the second time in the past two weeks.
A Pittsburgh Public Schools official confirmed to Channel 11 News that 30 more students were sent home from Roosevelt Elementary on Monday with lice.
School officials said students are getting checked out and if they pass the test, they’re allowed to come back to school.
On Nov. 16, 11 students were sent home for lice, and the school sent a letter to parents saying they were taking care of the situation.
The district spokesperson told Channel 11’s Brandon Hudson that they’re working with the Health Department to ensure the problem doesn’t continue.
“Yesterday, I watched a little girl getting her head checked and she was in tears. It wasn’t my daughter, but someone else’s,” a concerned parent told Hudson.
Another parent said she’s picked up her daughter from school with lice three times.
“This is three days she’s missing education,” the mother said. “I understand that they have to be cautious because lice is nothing fun.”
