Scarlet Fever

7th December 2015

Dear Parents/Carers

We have had a case of ‘Scarlet Fever’. The symptoms can be a scarlet-colored rash and the infection usually develops one to four days after a person is infected. Scarlet fever tends to follow a sore throat or a skin infection (calledimpetigo).

We would like to raise awareness of this infection.

Should you have any concerns or questions please contact your GP or the school office.
