Children learn best when they are well rested, have eaten a healthy meal, and are feeling well. Children who have a fever, have symptoms of vomiting or diarrhea, have a persistent cough, or have acute viral symptoms will be sent home to rest and receive care by their families.

  • Pediculosis:  Pediculosis is infestation with the human head-and-body louse, Pediculus humanus. There are two subspecies, the head louse (P. h. capitis) and the body louse (P. h. humanus). They are ectoparasites whose only known hosts are humans. Recent molecular data suggest that the two subspecies are ecotypes of the same species and that evolution between the two populations take place continually.
