Check your children for tics daily!
Our school nurse, Kathy Souleotis, took this tic off a student early one morning. The boy most likely picked it up on his way to school. He felt something crawling around in his hair, and asked her to check.
Ms. Souleotis informed me she has removed a high number of tics the past two weeks. Please make it a nightly routine to check your children thoroughly. Even if they have not been playing in the woods, these pests might find a way to hitch a ride.
