State law requires that we notify parents of children who become exposed to certain contagious diseases. If your child should become infected with a contagious disease, please let us know immediately so we can notify families of the other children who may have been exposed to the contagious disease. These diseases include but are not limited to E. Coli, Hepatitis, and Spinal Meningitis.
