Oct 20th / This is one of our regular reminders about the need for constant vigilance with regard to measles, chicken pox & shingles.  As you are aware, all of them are contagious, and the school environment provides an opportunity for them to spread.  For most pupils, catching any of these illnesses would be an unpleasant experience. For a few of our pupils, such as those who are receiving treatment for cancer, catching one of these illnesses would be even worse, and they would need to receive a special injection within three days of contact. Therefore, if you suspect that any student at Loreto may have one of these illnesses, please contact us immediately so we can ensure that the appropriate action is taken.
