Recent Rise in Stomach Infections


Dear parents, 

We want to bring to your attention a recent uptick in viral and bacterial stomach infections among both staff and students at our school. The health and safety of our students are of paramount importance, and we want to ensure that everyone is informed and taking the necessary precautions to minimize the spread of these infections.

A recent epidemiological bulletin published by the Ministry of Health, mentions that there is a rise in viral and stomach infections during this winter season when compared to the years 2021 and 2022. 

To help prevent the further spread of stomach infections, we kindly request your cooperation in taking the following precautions:

  • Frequent Handwashing: Encourage your child to wash their hands thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before meals and after using the restroom. If soap and water are not available, please use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Stay Home When Sick: If your child is feeling unwell, exhibiting symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or stomach pain, please keep them at home. Students should only return to school when they are symptom-free for at least 24 hours without the use of medication.
  • Avoid Sharing Personal Items: Encourage your child not to share food, utensils, or personal items with their classmates to reduce the risk of infection transmission.
  • Disinfect Surfaces: Disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home regularly, including door knobs, light switches, and countertops.
  • Seek Medical Advice: If your child exhibits severe symptoms or their condition worsens, please consult a healthcare professional promptly.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Wellness Center for assistance. Your child's well-being is our top priority, and we are committed to working together to ensure their safety and health.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
