Meningococcal Disease

A new Indiana law requires each year that parents/guardians be informed “about meningococcal disease and its vaccine” (IC20-30-5-18). Meningococcal disease is a dangerous disease that can attack children and youth. You may hear it referred to as meningitis. This is an infection of the fluid of a person’s spinal cord that surrounds the brain. It is caused by either a virus or bacteria. The disease can progress rapidly and within hours of the first symptoms, may result in permanent disability or death. Symptoms of meningococcal disease often resemble the flu and can include fever, headache, nausea and a stiff neck. This makes diagnosing difficult. The bacteria that cause meningococcal diseases are transmitted through air droplets and by direct contact with an infected person. Fortunately there is an immunization available and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends routine meningococcal immunizations at 11-12 years old. For teenagers, immunization is recommended at high school entry and incoming college freshman. Please talk with your child’s health care provider about meningococcal disease and vaccination.

H1N1

Dear Parent/Guardian,

As the flu season is quickly approaching, there has been more information regarding the possible increase of the H1N1 flu virus. The H1N1 can be highly contagious. The symptoms of H1N1 are fever, coughing, sneezing, fatigue, runny nose, sore throat and body aches. Flu is respiratory but may have some nausea and diarrhea associated with it. Adams Central Community Schools are taking precautions against the flu. We have been in close contact with the Adams County Health Department regarding the H1N1. Prevention is the key. Here are some ways to help protect you:

  • Practice frequent and appropriate hand washing with soap and water or alcohol hand gel.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your sleeve when coughing or sneezing. Don’t cough or sneeze in your hands.
  • Encourage no sharing of food or drinks with other students.
  • Wash your hands after blowing your nose or handling a dirty tissue. Dispose of tissue in the wastebasket.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick with a fever.
  • Avoid touching your eyes and mouth. Germs spread that way.
  • If your child is sick, please keep him/her at home.

Adams Central Community Schools are making every attempt to:

  • Educate students and faculty on proper hand washing.
  • The schools will be:
  • Disinfecting all door handles throughout the building daily.
  • Disinfecting all light switches throughout the building daily.
  • Disinfecting all restrooms daily.
  • Disinfecting all cafeteria tables between each student meal rotation time.
  • Disinfecting student desk tops.
  • Disinfecting locker room floors daily and after sporting events.
  • P.E. equipment disinfected after use.
  • Installing hand gel dispensers in the cafetorium.
  • Providing all classrooms and locker rooms with hand sanitizer.
If you have any question please contact the school at 260-692-6193.

Thank you, Adams Central Community Schools
