Impetigo (School Sores)

It has been brought to our attention that a child in the Junior School has been diagnosed with Impetigo (see attached sheet).

As this is a very contagious condition the following guidelines for treatment must be adhered to according to Health Department regulations.

1. Medical attention should be sought.

2. The child must be excluded from School until sores have fully healed.

3. The child may be allowed to return earlier provided that appropriate
treatment has commenced and that sores on exposed surfaces such
as scalp, face, hands or legs are properly covered with appropriate
dressings.

We thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

 

Ann-Marree Weigl
