In the first year of elementary, junior high, and high school, students have their hearts checked. Every year in elementary school, they have their teeth checked. Their urine is tested and they are checked for worms every year. Big Sister reminded me that these tests are not done in junior high and high school.
Little Brother brought this worm test home on Friday. He has to follow these directions two mornings in a row. The plastic strip has two sides that are used for each test day. He will put the strip in the little white envelop. His name and grade and class number are already printed on the other side. He will have to carry it to school on Tuesday. He told me, "Kids are never happy about this."
