Warning: Chicken Pox and Slapped cheek

Image

This is a notice to all parents that we have found out today that Mr Naylor has caught Chicken Pox and at some point would have been contagious, we are not sure where he has caught it from or when he caught it. We also know we have had a ‘Slapped cheek virus’ over the last week that could or could not have been linked to this. Unfortunately we are not sure at what points the people were contagious so we just want you to be aware of symptoms.

If you have any doubts or feel worried your child may have contracted either virus please follow these links to the NHS website for more information.

Miss Irwin has checked with Mr Naylor and he said he has not yet grown wings or feathers so hopefully he will be able to come back to school when he definitely not contagious. We wish him well.
