Viral Meningitis

A parent has informed the school that their child has been hospitalized with suspected viral meningitis.

NOTE: This is NOT bacterial meningitis.

Viral meningitis is the type that the Health Department recommends we treat just like a case of the flu.

GISD is concerned about your child’s health and wellness, so we will take the following steps:

  1. Clean and disinfect shared spaces on all campuses.

  2. Communicate with the Health Department as necessary.

  3. Send instructions and reminders to staff for proactive monitoring of students and hand washing.


Also here are proactive measures that you and your children can take to prevent the spread of germs:

  1. Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after changing diapers, using the toilet, or coughing or blowing your nose.

  2. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.

  3. Avoid close contact such as kissing, hugging, or sharing cups or eating utensils with people who are sick.

  4. Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your upper shirt sleeve, not your hands.

  5. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as toys and doorknobs, especially if someone is sick.

  6. Stay home when you are sick.A child who has run a fever should not return to school until he or she has gone 24 hours fever-free without fever-reducing medications.
