Mosquito-borne virus

Mosquito-borne virus
Posted on 09/18/2019

As many of you may know, Michigan has, unfortunately, had confirmed cases of the mosquito-borne virus known as Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE).  This virus is very dangerous and we have been taking precautionary steps towards addressing this public issue. First of all, today we have engaged in spraying for mosquitoes and treating the playground and every square inch of outdoor space around McMonagle Elementary.  Additionally, we are following the health department guidance and encouraging people to spray themselves with mosquito repellent containing DEET, and wearing long-sleeve clothing.

At this point, we are continuing to work with the health department and other county officials to determine other steps that need to be taken. We will keep you informed of anything that you should be aware of from the school's perspective, and to any developing news concerning this matter.

Respectfully,

Ms. Richards
