Lincoln Elementary News

AlertNow Message sent Wednesday, October 15

I’m writing this afternoon for two (2) reasons.  First, as a reminder that there is no school this Friday, October 17 for all students in our district ( grades K-12).  This is a planned day off per our Board approved school calendar. 

Second, with the news today that a health care worker from Dallas, who has contracted Ebola, traveled to the Northeastern Ohio region this past weekend, I want to provide an update on what we know and how our district is responding.  I contacted the Medina County Health Department this afternoon and they assured me that there are no special precautions our district needs to take right now.  They are closely monitoring the situation and working with other area public health departments to gather the facts of this case and locate those who may have been potentially exposed to the disease.  The representative from the health department assured me that if there becomes a need for precautions to be taken, we would be contacted.  The following provides some basic information on Ebola and provides further resources if you would like to learn more about the disease: 

What is Ebola?
Ebola is the cause of a viral hemorrhagic fever disease. Symptoms include: fever, headache, joint and muscle aches, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, lack of appetite and abnormal bleeding. Symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure to Ebola virus, though 8-10 days is most common.
 
How does Ebola spread

Ebola is spread through direct contact with:

  1. The blood or body fluids of a person who is sick with Ebola
  2. Objects (like needles) that have been contaminated with the blood or body fluids of a person sick with Ebola
  3. Touching the body of someone who has died from Ebola

Ebola is not spread by air or water.

If you have any further questions as they pertain to our school district, please let me know.
