Earlier this week Morgan County R-2 school officials contacted parents about a scare related to a report of a gun on bus. Now they’re reaching out for concerns of a different nature – a health scare involving a possible case of meningitis. The school says they’ve been informed of a suspected case of the illness and are working closely with the health department to take necessary precautions. The incubation period for meningitis is 1-10 days before symptoms show up. Common symptoms include fever and headache. The school says their biggest areas of concern are students on the middle school football team, those that claim religious exemptions from inoculations, and any student recently diagnosed with strep that still shows symptoms after treatment with antibiotics. If you feel your child may have been exposed or if they show any symptoms, contact your doctor immediately. You’re also encouraged to keep your child home until they have been fever-free for at least 24 hours.
