Whooping Cough(Pertussis) Concern

 

Dear Elementary Parents/Guardians,

 

It has come to our attention there is a possibility that your child has been exposed to an individual at Valliant Elementary School who is suspected of having pertussis (whooping cough).  Pertussis is a contagious disease that is spread through the air when an infected person sneezes or coughs.  Only people that have been in close proximity to the infected individual are at risk of being infected.  At this time the primary area of concern is in the Pre-K and Kindergarten classes.

The best way to prevent or help reduce your chance of getting pertussis is to be up-to-date on your vaccinations.

All students at Valliant Elementary are current on vaccinations! This childhood vaccine is called DTaP, and the pertussis booster vaccine for adolescents and adults is called Tdap.

NOTE: All students should receive a Tdap booster at eleven years of age.

As mentioned above, this is only a suspected case. If this does develop into a confirmed case of Pertussis the school will be notified by State officials and the school will notify all student’s parents that are affected. If you have any questions feel free to call Rachelle Gee, school nurse, at (580) 933-7248.
