Parents of students at Chaparral High School are being warned of a recent wave of skin infections at the school, according to new reports.
The Riverside Press Enterprise reports that school leaders sent home a letter on Friday, alerting guardians of ten student cases of staph and impetigo bacterial skin infections since November.
“The purpose of this letter is to let you know what actions have been taken,” the letter said, according to the PE.
School officials have since disinfected the campus, including the gym and other areas where infections typically spread. Students also watched a video detailing the importance of hand-washing, according to the PE.
