Important Notification for Coventry Elementary Parents
January 16, 2019 A student who attends Coventry Elementary school has recently been diagnosed with pertussis. The student is currently doing well. Pertussis, or Whooping Cough, is a very contagious respiratory illness caused by bacteria that is primarily spread when infected people cough or sneeze. The illness starts with cold-like symptoms, progressing to spasms of coughing, often with a “whoop” sound or vomiting after coughing spells. People of all ages can get pertussis. However, infants and other children with no or incomplete immunizations are most at risk for this illness and its serious complications, such as seizures and pneumonia. This is a good time to check your children’s shot records.If your child has a cough, or develops a cough, that lasts more than 7-10 days, please contact your child’s physician and take this letter with you. Pertussis symptoms can last as long as 10 weeks. Those treated with antibiotics continue to be contagious and will need to remain home until completing 5 days of antibiotics. There are many causes of respiratory illnesses in addition to pertussis. Practice good respiratory hygiene and keep your son or daughter home if he or she is ill. Don’t forget to notify the school . As always, remember to wash your hands often to prevent the spread of germs.

Seven Ways to Help Your Kids Avoid Holiday Weight Gain
You hear about the dreaded extra 10 pounds many adults gain this time of year – but kids can also pack on extra weight. When you mix large amounts of goodies and extra calories with time off from school – when kids tend to indulge in sedentary activities like watching TV and playing video games – you get holiday weight gain. “A couple extra cookies or a specialty beverage during the holidays can quickly add up to extra weight gain,” said Lindsay Bailey, a registered dietitian in Akron Children’s Center for Diabetes and Endocrinology. “An extra 500 calories each day contributes to 1 pound a week.” Bailey offers parents tips on how to help their kids enjoy the festivities without packing on the unwanted pounds.

Vaccine requirements for 7th & 12th graders
The state of Ohio requires all students entering the 7th grade to have the meningococcal vaccine (also known as MCV4, Menevo or Menactra) in addition to one dose of Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis). Additionally, the state of Ohio requires all students entering the 12th grade to have a second dose of meningococcal vaccine (also known as MCV4, Menevo or Menactra). If the first dose of meningococcal vaccine was administered on or after the 16th birthday, a second dose is not required. Vaccination is the best way to protect someone from getting the disease.You may obtain these vaccines from your child’s health care provider or other community resource. Vaccines are also available at your local health department. See school website for Summit County Health Department open hours. Students who do not provide documentation of these immunizations to the school this fall are subject to exclusion. If there are medical/religious or philosophical reasons your child cannot receive immunizations, please contact the school clinic for an Immunization Exemption Form.
