A Note from the Medical Editor
The start of each school year can be an exciting— and anxious—time for kids. While they may look forward to seeing their old friends again, they might be a bit fearful about a new teacher and, in some cases, a new school. It can also be hectic for parents too! We hope the following information will help you keep your child happy, healthy, and safe this back to school season. Have a great year!
