Updated advisory about students and the virus PDF Print E-mail

We still have a few students that are experiencing the symptoms associated with the Norovirus.   

Today, we received an important change of information from the state of NH DHHS.  They revised their earlier recommendation to ask that children stay out of school for 48 hours after the illness symptoms are gone.   They previously advised 24 hours, but today changed this recommendation after our school nurse shared her concerns. 

Again, please take the full 48 hours.

We are all working to provide a safe and healthy environment for our students.   Thank you for your support!

If you have any questions or concerns, you are encouraged to contact either principal or school nurse.

Norovirus concern at Central School PDF Print E-mail

HCS has seen many cases of upper respiratory illness including bronchitis and pneumonia, as well as increasing cases of the stomach virus circulating at school. We have a significant number of students and staff members that have been dealing with symptoms typically associated with Norovirus.

We have put in many extra precautions at HCS to minimize the spread of this virus.   Our staff members have increased the amount of precautions in classrooms during the day.  The custodial staff members are also increasing their cleaning procedures to maximize safety concerns.

  •  Below are some specific suggestions from Mrs. Houston, our school nurse
  • There are also some Norovirus facts from the state DHHS.
