Case of Chicken Pox in Public School

Hello everyone,

I have received notification from the School District that there is a reported case of Chicken Pox in a school. This is highly contagious and can spread via coughing or sneezing and from the fluid from blisters or saliva of an infected person. People with Chicken Pox can be contagious 5 days prior to 5 days after the formation of the rash. Please see the attached hand out below for more information.

Shannon McFee,
NAGK Principal
