Hello Lascassas parents,
We want to notify of a situation that we found out about today. The Health Department has confirmed that there has been a positive case of whooping cough (pertussis) involving one student at Lascassas.
The Health Department does NOT believe there is a serious health risk to other students but as a precaution we are posting a letter from the Health Department about whooping cough as a resource for parents who have questions. The letter is included below.
If you have any questions, please contact the school nurse or our health services department at 893-5812.
