In school the spreading of infec

more frequently here that Infection

Teachers, parents and children
should realize that when many child

very Important for parents and
teachers to co-operate with the local
health officer and the family physi

It is particularly important to do
this in every family whero some .

school when it opens will therefore
not become the medium of spreading
some communicable disease through
the community. '
