HELP REQUIRED - MEASLES, CHICKEN POX AND SHINGLES

Please may we ask for your co-operation in this important matter.

One of our pupils is receiving medical treatment for cancer/leukaemia that puts them at risk from measles, chicken pox and shingles. If they come into contact with anyone suffering from these conditions the pupil requires to be given some protection against them. Unfortunately this needs to be given within 72 hours of the contact. 

We would ask therefore that if your child develops, measles, chicken pox, or shingles that you inform us immediately so that appropriate action may be taken.

Your child is not at any risk from this situation, however, the health of our pupil does depend on your co-operation in this matter.
