School is a sacred land where education breathes. Unfortunately, it is also the land where germs breed!
Nearly 8 million school-age children in the U.S. miss school every year due to different reasons including illnesses they catch at school. And some of the common illnesses and infections include the common cold, influenza, stomach flu, pink eye, mumps, hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD), and head lice.
Although there is no guarantee that your kids won’t catch viruses from the comfort of their own seats in class, there are particular areas at school that are swarming with bacteria more than others, which you will know about before everything else in order to protect your kids properly.
And since young kids are more prone to getting sick than adults because their immune system is still weak, you’ll also find the smart tips to reduce your kids’ risk of catching illnesses at school.
