Dear parents and carers,
We have had a case of ‘Chicken Pox’ confirmed in school. This virus causes an itchy rash starting with flat red spots which become raised and filled with fluid. It usually begins with a fever and is spread from person to person and the fluid inside the spots is infectious.
Chickenpox is infectious during its early stages from 1 – 2 days before until 5 days after sports first appear. Children can return to school 5 days from onset of the rash.
Pregnant women please contact your GP.
