Members of the DGH school community,

 

Please be aware that there has been a confirmed case of Fifth Disease in the Dr. George Hall Public School building.  This was confirmed last week (a sign has been up on the DGH front doors all of this week).

 

An information sheet on Fifth Disease was placed in a folder on the front doors and additional information can be located by searching “Fifth Disease” on the internet or by clicking on the link below.  Please note that the person posting this message (Mr. Parish) is definitely not a doctor (!) and is providing this link for informational purposes.  Should you have any medical concerns or questions, please contact a doctor.
