Head Lice

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, there are between 6,000,000 and 12,000,000 cases of head lice in the United States yearly in children three to twelve years of age. All socioeconomic groups are affected. Head lice are not a sign of poor hygiene and are not responsible for the transmission of diseases.

To help control the spread of head lice at Folger, please let the health room staff know if your child has head lice. Also be sure to follow the directions for using the treatment recommended by your health care provider. A repeat treatment is usually required. Removal of all nits or eggs will allow you to know if there is further infestation. Please contact me if you have any questions. We are here to help you in any way we can. Read more...

Asthma:

As autumn begins, temperatures begin to fall and there is an increase in some allergens. If your child has asthma and we do not have an emergency inhaler in the Health Room, I strongly encourage you to provide us with one. The Parent Request to Administer Medication form can be found at the top-right of this page and is available online at www.aahealth.org , under School Health. We can also send the form home to you. Please let us know if we can help you in any way. Read more...

Change of Clothing:

Please consider sending a change of clothing to place in your child’s locker. We have only a limited supply of clothing in the Health Room and children are usually more comfortable in their own clothes. Thank you.

Safe use of crutches/boots at school:

If your child’s health care provider recommends crutches or a boot at school, please:

Thank you
