Dear Parents, As you may know we have a confirmed case of strep that was sent home last week. Please keep an eye on your child for the following symptoms.

  • Severe and sudden sore throat without coughing, sneezing, or other cold symptoms.
  • Pain or difficulty with swallowing.
  • Fever over 101F. Lower fevers may indicate a viral infection and not strep.
  • Swollen lymph nodes in the neck.
  • White or yellow spots or coating on the throat and tonsils.
  • Bright red throat or dark red spots on the roof of the mouth at the back near the throat.
  • Swollen tonsils, although this symptom may also be caused by a viral infection.

We have also had many friends with running noses and coughs. Please remember the 24 hour fever policy.

Thanks for everything– Ms. Abbie
