Measles, chickenpox and shingles

Dear parent / carer,

Measles, chickenpox and shingles


Please may we ask for your co-operation in an important matter.

One of our students is receiving medical treatment for cancer which puts them at risk if they are exposed to measles, chickenpox or shingles.

Please let us know immediately if your child is suspected of having measles.

Our student is also at risk from chickenpox and would need to be given an injection within three days of contact. If your child is suspected of having chickenpox, you should let us know immediately.

It is also important that you let us know if there is shingles in your household.

Your child is not at any risk whatsoever from this situation. However, the health and well-being of our student who is at risk does depend on the co-operation of all other parents and we hope you can help us.

Thank you for your support in this matter. Yours faithfully,




Mr D Mckeon Principal
