Coronavirus - Health Precautions

Mar 9, 2020

Dear Parent(s),

Kenilworth Science and Technology School is currently monitoring the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), a respiratory illness that can cause mild to severe symptoms. Symptoms can include respiratory symptoms, cough, fever, or shortness of breath. It can also cause Pneumonia. It can be mistaken for the Flu (same symptoms).
We are proactively working with the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and) and (LOH) Louisiana Department of Health to continue to maintain a clean and sanitary school environment. As a precautionary measure, custodial staff will be sanitizing surfaces, door handles, and other common contact points more frequently. There are also sanitary wipes and sanitary spray in all classrooms.
Kenilworth is monitoring information from the Louisiana Department of Health and the Mayor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness to ensure all safety precautions are taken as needed. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), here are a few preventive steps to limit exposure and prevent the potential spread of respiratory viruses at home and at school:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

Please call your child's physician or health care provider if you suspect your child may have an illness. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the school nurse (Trine) at (225) 766-8112 between the hours of 7a-3p Monday-Friday.

You can visit  for more information about the disease.
Kenilworth will continue to monitor the Coronavirus and proactively plan to prevent the potential spread of diseases. As always, the safety and security of our students and staff remain our top priority.
