Dear Parents/Carers,

Re: Measles, Chicken Pox and Shingles 

We would like to ask for your support with a serious matter. 

One of our pupils has recently received medical treatment for Leukaemia. This puts the pupil at serious risk if exposed to measles, chicken pox or shingles.

The best way to protect a pupil from measles is for all pupils to be immunised. Please discuss immunisation for measles with your GP if your child is not already vaccinated. If you suspect your child has measles you should let the school know immediately. 

Our pupil is also at risk from chicken pox and would need to seek medical advice if exposed. Please let us know immediately if you suspect that your child has chicken pox. 

It is also very important that you let us know if anyone in your household has shingles. 

Your own child is not at any risk whatsoever from this situation. However, the health and wellbeing of our compromised pupil may be at serious risk. We depend on the co-operation of all parents and know we can rely on your help. 

Yours sincerely, 

Mrs S Yay-Walker, Headteacher
