As you may be aware from the recent media coverage, some school age children have been impacted by the enterovirus. Quincy Catholic Academy would like to provide our parents and guardians some suggestions and information regarding this health issue that have been provided by the Quincy Public Schools Health Service Department. Mrs. Duggan is working closely and is in constant contact with the QPS Health Service Department.
In general, infants, children, and teenagers are most likely to get infected with enteroviruses because they do not have protection from previous exposures to these viruses. It appears that children with asthma are at higher risk; they should regularly take medicines and maintain control of their illness during this time. They should also take advantage of the influenza vaccine since people with asthma have a difficult time with respiratory illnesses. If symptoms of illness worsen contact your pediatrician.
Listed below are the preventative guidelines from the Center for Disease Control (CDC)
Quincy Catholic Academy nurses and staff are aware and knowledgeable about this health concern and the above suggestions will be reinforced at school. We do ask that if your child is exhibiting any symptoms of illness, especially fever, please do NOT sent them to school. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Duggan at 617-328-3830 or email@example.com.
Thank you for your support and cooperation.

Where a child attends school is one of the most influential decisions a parent can make on behalf of their child. At Quincy Catholic Academy, our dedicated faculty and staff would like to welcome you to visit our school and learn how beneficial an education at Quincy Catholic Academy can be.
We want to make sure that all students and parents of Quincy Catholic Academy can find the information they are looking for on the web site.
To make things easier for you, we have created a special parents section on the site that will include all the forms, notices and information you will need.
