Whooping Cough - Public Health Notice

NOTICE TO PARENTS

 

Harrison Trimble High School

Dear Parent(s),

 

Public Health would like to advise you that there has been a case of pertussis

(whooping cough) in your child’s school. For your information, we are enclosing a Fact Sheet on Pertussis.

 

If your child develops symptoms like those described in the fact sheet, please see your family physician or go to an after-hours clinic and inform them that your child may have come in contact with whooping cough. Whooping cough is spread by coughing or contact with saliva and may cause severe disease in a young child.

 

If your physician suspects that you or your child has whooping cough, appropriate testing should be done to confirm the diagnosis. A positive result will allow Public Health to do further follow up to protect others who may be at risk for this disease.

 

Please make sure that your child is up to date with his vaccination. Your child should have received a pertussis vaccine as an adolescent. After the age of 18, adults are eligible for a Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis (Tdap) vaccine. For further information, consult with your family doctor.

 

If you have any questions, please contact Public Health at 856-3220.  We appreciate your attention to this matter.

 

Sincerely,

 

Roberte Gaudet

New school year message

Good afternoon Trojans and Families. Good afternoon Trojans and Families.

Although the school year has not yet started, there is some important information that I would like to share with you.

The school is still closed this week. Contractors are finishing up construction and administrators are in meetings preparing for your arrival. Next week, teachers return and the main office will be open.

 The first day of school for grade 9 students this year will be Wednesday, September 4th. Please note this is a change from previous years.  Students in grades 10 thru 12 will begin on Tuesday, September 3. All students will return on Thursday, September 5.

It is time to start thinking about getting involved in your school. Cheerleading tryouts will be all this week at HTHS from 6-8 pm. Weather permitting, the tryouts will be on the field. If not we will move in to the gym. Please wear proper attire and bring water. We hope to see you there.

Tryouts for field hockey, boys’ and girls’ soccer, boys’ baseball and girls’ softball will be the first week of school. It is suggested that you bring gym clothes with you the first week as practice may be right after school.

We look forward to seeing to seeing you all in two weeks.
