Health and Wellness Reminders for the Spring
The single most important thing that can be done to prevent Lyme disease and other diseases spread by ticks is to check yourself and your child’s body for ticks every day after being outdoors. Ticks that have attached should be removed as soon as possible using a pair of fine point tweezers, grabbing the tick as close to the skin as possible, and pulling straight out. If you remove a tick, please call your health care provider to determine if any additional treatment is needed.
Please remember to apply sunscreen to your child prior to coming to school when sunny weather arrives!
Thank you for your ongoing partnership!
