Pittsburgh school deals with second lice outbreak

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pittsburgh elementary school is dealing with its second outbreak of head lice this month and, this time, has sent 30 students home until tests show they're free of the tiny bugs.

Officials at Roosevelt Elementary School sent 11 students home on Nov. 16 and believed they had the problem solved.

But it cropped up again Monday.

That's when school officials tell WPXI-TV (http://bit.ly/VdIHf1 ) they had to send another 30 students home.

A Pittsburgh Public Schools spokeswoman says officials are working with the Allegheny County Health Department to fix the problem.
