Dear Parent or Legal Guardian:

 

We would like to addressthe issue of Staphylococcal infections (commonly called “staph) since it has been brought to our attention as arecent concern in our area. The school.has sought guidance from

Kristen Wilson, Nurse Manager with the Montgomery County Health Department and Dr. Lawton Davis, District Health Director with the South Central Health District to make sure theymaintain a healthy learning environment for their students. According to public health officials, all types of staph bacteria that cause skin infections are spread by direct contact(skin-to-skin contact). This means that someone

with the bacteria in awound or ontheir skin can spread it to others through direct skin contact or by sharing personal items (towels, razors, clothing, sports equipment, etc), and possibly through contaminated surfaces. Staph infections may start out looking like a spider bite and appearred,warm, swollen, tender, pimple-like, present as a boil or blister, and/or contain pus. A healthcare provider can use laboratory teststo determine if the infection is due to atypical staph bacteria or atype of staph that is rcsistant to some antibiotics. Some staph infections resolve without treatment while other infections require antibiotics for treatment.

 

The school has taken extra steps to prevent the spread of staph and otherbacteria on the campus. They have enhanced their cleaning routines, placed hand sanitizer in the classrooms, andput aprocedure in place for an on-site healthcare provider, the athletic trainer, to check students with skin infections. The trainer will contact the parent/legalguardian of all students who may need further evaluation by a healthcare provider. Students with skin infections diagnosed as or thought to be staph infections will be allowed to attend school as long as the wound is covered with a dressing that contains all drainage. A

layer of clothing is also desired to cover properly dressed wounds. Participation in activities that involve contact with other children will be restricted unless the wound is properly covered at all times. If a student has a wound that cannotbe properly covered with the drainage being contained in the bandage,

the student will be senthome until aphysician provides clearance for the studentto return to school.

 

 

The school is doing its part to minimize the number of students impacted by skin infections, but we also need the assistance ofparents/guardians. Look over your child’s skin to make sure hefshe docs not have any skin infections. If you think your child has a skin infection, consider taking him/her to see a healthcare provider. Ifa skin infection is present, please take extra measures to make sure handwashing with soap and water is practiced frequently, contact with wound drainage is avoided, and personal items are not shared. Be sure to clean and disinfect surfacesthat may come in contact with skin lesions and wash all dirty clothes and linens of the infected child separately from other household members’ belongings using hot water with detergent and heated drying astolerated by the fabric. We appreciate your c00peration with this matter. Ifyou have any questions, feel free to contactthe school of?ce or the South Central Health District at478-275-6545.

 

Sincerely,
