    Pink eye is an inflammation or infection of the conjunctiva, the membrane that lines the eyelid and covers the white part of the eye. It can be contagious.
    It's usually caused by bacteria, viruses, or allergies.
    Early diagnosis and treatment can help limit its spread and reduce the risk of complications.
    Students that show these symptoms should NOT come to school and seek medical attention immediately.
