No Connection Between LHS Meningitis Cases

Two faculty members have been diagnosed this year.

No Connection Between LHS Meningitis Cases

A second faculty member has been diagnosed with viral meningitis at Londonderry High School, but Superintendent Nate Greenberg said that there is no connection between the two incidents.

"My understanding is that the individual is doing fine," Greenberg said of the teacher.

Greenberg said that parents have been sent notes and all faculty and staff have been notified of the situation.

The district has also worked to sanitize all sinks, toilets and water fountains, as well as a cleaning of all of the rooms at LHS.

"We're right on top of this stuff," Greenberg said.

The fact sheet sent to parents outlines the symptoms of the illness, such as how it spreads and how it is diagnosed.

Apart from notifying others and cleaning the school, he said that not much else can be done.

The faculty member can't come back to work until they get a clearance letter from the doctor.

The first faculty member was diagnosed with the same strain in October. The identities of both staffers have been concealed for privacy reasons.
