Tick Info - A note from UES Nurse

Image result for tick insect clip art
This is a reminder to have your kids dressed appropriately (ex. pants tucked into socks w closed toe shoes) for ECO and do self checks when they arrive home. We do prepare by managing clothing appropriately to prevent tick bites, and students have learned how to do self tick checks upon returning to school from all outings. May is the month there are the most ticks. Here is a link to the Tick Encounter Resource Center which is a wonderful resource.
