The most vulnerable for the school process are the kids who just went to first grade. It’s more difficult for them to get used to the schedule, and even in the winter cold getting to school is dangerous.

This period falls, usually in February, with the advent of the most severe frosts.

Rest lasts about a week, but can be increased if the frost does not subside. Reduce children's stress, conduct better adaptation and help the baby - the task of this period. In addition, it is in February that the risk of exacerbation of SARS and influenza increases. Yes, and first graders are better perseverance, if they get a short break.
