Measles and chickenpox

5 July 2022 (by Tracy Cottam (TCottam))

Dear Parents

          Measles, chickenpox and shingles

Please may we ask for you co-operation in an important matter.

One of our pupils is receiving medical treatment for cancer which puts them at risk if they are exposed to measles, chickenpox or shingles.

Please let us know immediately if your child is suspected of having measles.

Our pupil is also at risk from chickenpox and would need to be given an injection within three days of contact. If your child is suspected of having chickenpox, you should let us know immediately.

It is also important that you let us know if there is shingles in your household.

Your child is not at any risk whatsoever from this situation. However, the health and well-being of our pupil who is at risk does depend on the co-operation of all other parents and we hope you can help us

With many thank.

Yours sincerely

Head Teacher
