Whooping cough diagnosis at Cain Elementary

Parent/Guardian:

We have recently learned that a student in your child's school has been diagnosed with Pertussis (Whooping Cough) during Thanksgiving break. While this student did not have any symptoms at school before the break, the decision was made to notify parents and guardians.

Although most school age children have had the vaccine, there remains a small risk for contracting the virus. If contracted, vaccinated children normally have a less severe case of pertussis than a child that has not been vaccinated.

The initial symptoms of this highly infectious virus are cold-like symptoms with a mild fever, runny nose, and cough. After 7-10 days, the cold-like symptoms begin to fade and the coughing becomes worse. As a result of inflammation and narrowed airways, the cough is a dry, hacking cough producing periods of uncontrollable coughing which makes breathing difficult for the child. It may take several weeks for your child to completely recover from Pertussis.
