Please read the following letter. You can also use the link below for additional information.
We wanted to notify you of a confirmed case of MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staph Aureus) of a student at Kellogg High School. This student has been under the care of their primary care physician and is following treatment as prescribed.
According to Panhandle Health District, MRSA is a common bacteria that has developed a resistance to some antibiotics. About 1 percent of the population carries the bacteria with no ill effects but it can cause problems.
Our school continues taking precautions, including disinfecting athletic facilities (training room, locker room, weight room), equipment (including mats), and surfaces throughout the building . Our Registered Nurse has been reiterating to students about the importance of hand washing and not sharing personal items.
Please partner with us in preventing the spread of MRSA by taking these steps:
· Teach your child how to properly wash hands (warm water and soap rubbed vigorously for at least 15 seconds) and encourage them to do so frequently
· Encourage good hygiene in general, i. e. showering daily
· Change and launder your sheets, towels and clothes regularly
· Remind your child not to share towels, toothbrushes, razors or other personal items
· Encourage your child to take care of their skin since a break, crack or wound can allow infection to enter
· If your child has a wound, clean it and keep it completely covered
· See a doctor if your child has a bump that is red, swollen, painful, warm to the touch, full of pus or other drainage, and may be accompanied with a fever.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Nicole Lewis, MSN, RN, school district nurse at 784-1371.

KHS Media Center has a brand new online catalog. This is a dramatic change for the way we can offer services to our patrons. Through our new website you can search for library materials at home on your home computer, laptop or smartphone. Our automated card catalog is located on all KHS Media Center computer stations, and is readily available by opening the Google Chrome feature. Because the website and catalog all work from the same source, looking for materials and status is as easy as can be. Included in this new program are many different sources for a reader to look through our Media Center collection. The URL for this new and advanced feature of the Media Center is as follows: khs.ksd.kari.opalsinfo.net/bin/home.
