For those families remaining in Puerto Rico, tax deductible donations can made to the non profit: Casa Boricua/Hurricane Relief Fund. We are asking you to consider donating a new or gently used children’s coat or much needed school supplies (backpacks, binders, pencils, pens, etc.)

  • Health Concerns 1-5-17

    Dear Westbrook School Community:

    I am certain you will recall an information notice that was sent on December 8th regarding an isolated case of Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease.  Since that time, we have had no other cases confirmed until today.  At this time, there is only one case of a student who was not contagious or displaying any symptoms while in school and this does not constitute an epidemic.  Still, I am sharing this information and turn your attention once again to our website where you will find simple measures that can be taken to prevent Hand, Foot and Mouth disease origination and spread.

    The link below will provide steps that we can continue to take to understand the symptoms of the disease, information on its course and how to protect and stop any outbreak.  The information will be found on our Health Dept. webpage that is created and maintained by our school nurses.  As you read through the information on this issue and the importance of good personal hygiene and environmental cleaning and disinfecting practices, please know that we have already upgraded our daily cleaning and disinfecting program in all three schools. 

    Thank you for your consideration of this non-life threatening health update.  Early notice of these practices and information for parents/guardians is, I am sure, why we have avoided any major outbreaks.  As always, please contact our school nurses with any questions or concerns regarding this information and your students.  And, of course, I am available to discuss our school district response to this and other health issues at your convenience.
