Dear Parents/ Guardians,

It has recently come to our attention that one of our students at Westford Academy has been diagnosed with Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Our Director of School Nurses, Joan Mitchell, has requested that I provide you with the enclosed information.
Westford Academy understands the urgency in addressing the MRSA infection immediately, and will continue to disinfect locker rooms, gym mats and equipment.  In addition, all coaches are reviewing with their athletes the signs and symptoms, as well as methods to prevent MRSA infections.
I am asking that you review the attached Massachusetts Department of Public health fact sheets with your child.  If you have questions, please contact Joan Mitchell at 978-692-5570, extension 2115.

Sincerely,

Everett V. Olsen, Jr.
Superintendent of Schools
