Illness

Our school is experiencing a greater than usual number of cases of an enteric illness which we suspect may be caused by a virus. The symptoms we have seen are vomiting and upset stomach. These types of illness are easily spread and we have consulted with Ottawa Public Health about reducing the risks of continued transmission. Anyone who is ill is requested to stay home for 48 hours after they stop having symptoms.   If your child experiences any symptom of gastroenteritis, keep the child home and advise the school of the nature as well as the symptoms of the illness when reporting the absence.
