We sent you a parent bulletin yesterday, but a few things have come up since
then that we wanted you to know about.
We have had several cases of Fifth Disease. It is a viral illness
characterized by red flushed cheeks and low grade fever. The rash may last
for 1 - 3 weeks, starts on the cheeks and may spread to the arms, thighs and

Children are not contagious once the rash appears. The public Health
Department recommends those that are pregnant contact their physician if they
have been exposed.
