Important Information

Gastrointestinal Illness Prevention


Important Information

May 19, 2017

You may have heard of a gastrointestinal illness going around the state, including several school districts. This week, Santa Clara Unified began to see children with symptoms.

This particular illness is highly contagious and symptoms do not start until 1 to 2 days after exposure. Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, poor appetite, and headache. It is spread primarily through handling items or touching surfaces contaminated with the virus, eating or drinking contaminated food or water, and by being next to a vomiting individual.

Administrators and staff, including school nurses, custodians, and teachers are working diligently at affected schools to keep the virus from spreading, following Santa Clara County Public Health Department guidelines and protocols. These include: 

  • Sending exposure notices to families of children who may have been exposed in their classroom; 
  • Following cleaning and disinfecting protocols for gastrointestinal illness until all students have been symptom free for 48 hours;  
  • Educating staff and students on proper hand hygiene; 
  • Voluntarily postponing or cancelling community events such as evening festivals at some schools; and 
  • Asking those sick to stay home until symptom free for 48 hours. 

We encourage parents to continue to send their children to school as long as they are healthy and not showing symptoms, practice proper hand hygiene by washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and especially after using the toilet, monitor your family for symptoms and keep them home until they are symptom free for 48 hours.

For more information, please contact the Santa Clara Unified School District Public Relations office at communications@scusd.net and check our website regularly for updates in our news items section.
