CPSD Scabies Update 

Canton Public School District Superintendent Ike Haynes says the district has taken and will continue to take every measure possible to keep students safe.

" I want to reassure parents and students that crews have worked diligently to thoroughly deep clean and disinfect all schools, school cafeterias, and school buses, to prevent any additional cases of scabies. So far, we have 15 reported cases of scabies.

I want to thank our maintenance department for working around the clock over the Labor Day Holiday to sanitize all of our facilities to ensure our students' safety. We are asking parents to continue to monitor their children and if they develop any symptoms please seek medical attention and keep school officials informed.

Again our students' safety is our top priority and we continue working to make sure they stay safe while in our care." 

-- CPSD Superintendent Ike Haynes


What is scabies and how can I treat it?

Scabies is a skin condition where a tiny mite burrows under the skin and causes a rash.

  •        What are the Symptoms of scabies?

Symptoms include a rash that is very itchy and uncomfortable, especially at night. The rash may look like red bumps or small blisters, and scratch marks from the fingernails are often a common sign.


  • How is scabies spread?

By direct and prolonged, skin-to-skin contact with someone with scabies

Sharing common household items such as clothing, towels, and bedding.

  • How is scabies diagnosed and treated?

A healthcare provider can take a tiny scraping of the skin and look under the microscope for the mites. Scabies is treated with a prescription cream or lotion. Family members and very close contacts should also be treated at the same time as infected child, even if no signs are present.


  • How do you control the spread?

Launder bedding, towels, pillows, and clothing worn next to the skin during the 4 days before treatment began in a washer with hot water and dry items using the hot setting.



CPSD Works Diligently to Contain Spread of Scabies

"The Canton Public School District has informed its parents their child may have recently been exposed to scabies. There are 5-10 reported cases of scabies at several of our schools. The district is in the process of performing a deep cleaning to disinfect the buildings. Teachers are also making sure students increase hand washing. We are working diligently to make sure every measure possible has been taken to prevent the spread of scabies."
