Pertussis Notification

GovDelivery1 month ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

Pertussis Notification

Dear Parent or Guardian:

In cooperation with the Fairfax County Health Department, we are sending this health information letter home because a case of pertussis (whooping cough) has been identified at our school. 

Pertussis is an infection caused by bacteria (germs).  The illness begins with cold symptoms such as runny nose, sneezing, fever, and cough.  The cough becomes much worse over one to two weeks and includes bursts of uncontrollable cough which may be followed by a high-pitched whoop or by vomiting. The cough may continue for weeks to months.  Pertussis can be treated with antibiotics. This disease can be serious for infants, young children, and pregnant women.  Children are routinely vaccinated against pertussis (as part of the DTaP vaccine).  The vaccine is very effective but protection decreases several years after the last vaccination.  Fully vaccinated individuals usually develop a milder form of pertussis. 

We recommend the following to help control the spread of pertussis:

  • Check your child’s immunization records. Children should receive 5 doses of pertussis vaccine, one dose at each of the following ages: 2, 4, 6, and 15-18 months and 4-6 years.  Please contact your health care provider to ensure your child is completely vaccinated.
  • For older children and adults, a booster vaccine known as Tdap is now available. This vaccine is recommended for children 7 to 10 years of age who are not fully vaccinated against pertussis, all children 11 to 18 years of age, and all adults. Pregnant women should get a dose of Tdap during every pregnancy, to protect the newborn from pertussis. Contact your health care provider to determine if anyone in your household requires additional vaccine.
  • Monitor your child for signs of illness. Even if your child has been vaccinated against pertussis, he/she may still develop the disease because protection from the vaccine may decrease over time.
  • Keep any child experiencing pertussis symptoms at home until you have consulted with your health care provider or the Health Department. We encourage laboratory testing for pertussis to confirm the diagnosis.
  • Keep any child diagnosed with pertussis isolated at home during the first five days of antibiotic therapy (i.e. he or she should not attend school, school functions, sporting or extracurricular activities, or leave the home except to seek medical care).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after coughing or sneezing. Teach your children to wash their hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds. Be sure to set a good example by doing this yourself. If soap and water are not available, alcohol-based hand sanitizers may be used.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue and throw tissues in the trash after use. If tissues are not available, cover coughs and sneezes with your upper sleeve.

We encourage you to put this information into practice to help your child stay healthy and to prevent others from getting sick. If you have questions regarding this information, please contact your health care provider or the School Public Health Nurse, Lisa S. Yonika, RN, BSN, NCSN at 571-722-7275.

Sincerely,

Chad Lehman

Principal

Wildcat Band looking for Donations of Unused Phones

The Wildcat Band is looking for donations of unused phones for students without a device. Donated phones will allow students to access the Ultimate Drill Book app this summer and fall. Marching Band students learn the drill (the movements on the field that make up the halftime show) using this amazing app, as it provides a wealth of information! Sometimes, students need to borrow a phone so it's good to have a few extra on hand. If you or someone you know has an extra phone that you would be willing to donate, the band would greatly appreciate it!

Requirements:

iPad 2017 or later

iPhone 7 or later 

Android phones or tablets running Android 7.1 or later

Please bring any donations to the main office at CVHS, ATTN: Melissa Hall, Band Director. Or you can send them in with your student and they can bring them to the band room. Thank you!

Every spring, the administration of Centreville High School seeks to celebrate the wonderful 300 staff members with a lunch during the National Teacher Appreciation month of May.  This year the school is hoping to provide a taco bar from Mo’s Southwest Grill to the teachers.  Since we didn’t have the spring mulch sale this year (which we hope to retrieve next year), the budget is tight.  Please consider giving a donation of $10 or more to show the Centreville staff that they are appreciated and click on the UPDATED link provided below to make your payment.  Any questions can be directed to Alison Machmer at [email protected].  Thank you!

PTSA Spring Teacher Appreciation Donations from CVHS Families

Sent on behalf of the CVHS PTSA:

Every spring, the administration of Centreville High School seeks to celebrate the wonderful 300 staff members with a lunch during the National Teacher Appreciation month of May.  This year the school is hoping to provide a taco bar from Mo’s Southwest Grill to the teachers.  Since we didn’t have the spring mulch sale this year (which we hope to retrieve next year), the budget is tight.  Please consider giving a donation of $10 or more to show the Centreville staff that they are appreciated and click on the link provided below to make your payment.  Any questions can be directed to Alison Machmer at [email protected].  Thank you!

Throughout this year, the PTSA has been able to thank our teachers and staff by providing various treats such as Halloween doughnuts; in December a station with popcorn, M&M’s & peanuts; on Valentine’s Day cookies and candy; and this month bagels and cream cheese were provided.  Thank you to Alison Machmer and Debby Park for coordinating and setting up.  CVHS staff loves their PTSA!!!

C'ville School News 04-19-2024   3rd Quarter Report Cards

Report cards and attendance reports will be mailed the week of 4/22.  You should be receiving your students report card by the end of next week.  Please encourage your students to make the most of their 4th quarter and work to make improvements where needed.  Thank you!

 

Attendance Update

As you know, we have been focused on improving attendance as a goal this year.  Our goal is to stay under 15% chronic absenteeism rate.  We are currently at 18% as of 4/18, so we have improvements to make.  Every absence matters!  The attendance rate has been getting higher as we’ve entered into the 4th quarter.  Please ensure that students are attending every day, arriving on time, and they stay focused at the end of the school year.  If students have appointments, it is better to attend part of the day than missing the whole day.  Students can also “earn back” attendance hours by staying after school with their teachers.  Please encourage them to stay after school on late bus days with a teacher where they need extra help.  Thank you!

 

New Director of Student Activities Named

Our current Director of Student Activities, Mr. Sanabria, is retiring on Jul 31, 2024 after 30 years of amazing service at CVHS.  We wish him well, and we want to share exciting news that Mr. Mike Parker has been selected as our new Director of Student Activities beginning Aug 1, 2024.  Mr. Parker has been an assistant principal at CVHS since 2017.  He has also served as an assistant principal and director of student services at Mt. View HS and Thoreau MS.  Mr. Parker is dedicated to the Centreville community as an educator, coach, parent, and resident.  He looks forward to continuing to strengthen the athletic, activities, arts, and all extracurricular programs for our students here at CVHS, and he is excited to make this transition.  Please join us in congratulating Mr. Parker.
