School returns next week, as does the possibility of children catching head lice from their classmates. Dr. Rachel Crudgington, pediatrician in The Longstreet Clinic’s Oakwood office, said she sees more children with lice during the school year, when they are in close contact with each other. There were about 1,000 cases of lice last school year out of Hall County’s nearly 26,000 students, according to Mamie Coker, registered nurse and health services coordinator for the Hall County School District.
