MUMPS – A LETTER FROM THE DISTRICT
Dear District and Community Patrons,
There have been 2 suspect, unconfirmed cases of mumps in the Maquoketa School system reported this week. When we receive more information about either of these cases we will let you know. Please see below what the symptoms of the mumps are and what you should do if you suspect that you, or your child, might have the disease.
The Maquoketa Community School District has received parental confirmation of two students having the mumps. One student at Cardinal Elementary and one student at the Middle School. However, for these cases to be confirmed Public Health must make that determination and will contact the school district. We are in close contact with Public Health and when we have the results we will let you know. Thank you.
