We have been seeing an abundant amount of caterpillar rashes on our students. The best way to avoid the rash is to wear long sleeves and prevent exposure.  However, they are all around us and difficult to avoid.  The rash appears 12-48 hours after exposure and can last up to two weeks.  The best relief is an antihistamine, Caladryl, or hydrocortisone.  PLEASE apply cream to your child before school in order to help relieve their itching.  Let's hope these little caterpillars find their homes soon....although not a good option for our trees!

"School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well being, academic success, and lifelong achievement of students. To that end, School Nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy and learning." ~National Association of School Nurses
