School District Warns Of Whooping Cough

December 10, 2009, 5:00 PM by Kelli Grant

School District Warns Of Whooping Cough
The Sioux Falls School District is asking parents to watch for symptoms of whooping cough. Parents received either a call or an email yesterday explaining that a child has possibly been exposed at Harvey Dunn Elementary and Patrick Henry Middle School. Symptoms first show up as a cold, but are followed by severe coughing spells which may cause a child to vomit. And its spreads easily.

"If you cough on someone or a regular cold and you cough on someone. You need to take those good health hygiene practices, washing your hands, coughing in your elbow, using your tissue," said Sheila Freed, Health Services Supervisor.

Thursday, kids in the Sioux Falls School District were sent home with a letter explaining the situation. And asking that if your child has symptoms, to consider seeing your doctor. If your child needs a booster vaccine for the disease, it's a good time to get it.
