 Fifth Disease
Fifth disease is a mild rash illness caused by parvorirus B19.  It is more common in children than adults.  A person usually gets sick with fifth disease within four to 14 days after getting infected with parvovirus B19.  This, disease, also called erythema infectiosum, got its name because it was fifth in a list of historical classifications of common skin rash illnesses in children.
Signs & Symptons
The symptoms of fifth disease are usually mild and may include:
fever
runny nose
headache
rash

You can get a rash on your face and body.  You may get a red rash on your face called "slapped cheek" rash.  This rash is the most recognized feature of fifth disease.  Some people may get a second rash a few days later on their chest, back, buttocks, or arms and legs.  The rash may be itchy, especially on the soles of the feet.  It can vary in intensity and usually goes away in seven to ten days, but it can come and go for several weeks.  As it starts to go away, it may look lacy.
Transmission
Fifth disease spreads through respiratory secretions, such as saliva, sputum, or nasal mucus, when an infected person coughs or sneezes.  You are most contagious when it seems like you have "just a fever and/or cold" and before you get the rash or joint pain and swelling.  After you get the rash you are not likely to be contagious, so then it is usually safe for you or your child to go back to work or school.
Prevention
There is no vaccine or medicine that can prevent parvovirus B19 infection.  You can reduce your chance of being infected or infection others by:
-washing your hands often with soap and water
-covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze
-not touching your eyes, nose, or mouth
-avoid close contact with people who are sick
-staying home when you are sick

Winter weather is upon us and it is time to begin planning for possible weather related school postponements or cancellations.  Blair Community Schools will use two options this year that include cancelling school or postponing with a 90-minute delayed start.  This would be the same as the Friday schedule.  
A 90-minute delayed start would be used rarely and called by 7:00 p.m. the night prior to the postponement.  A 90-minute delayed start would be used for the day after a storm or for a late night storm when a minimal amount of time is needed to clear roads.  Blair Kids Academy would open at 8:00 a.m. on these days.
When school is postponed or cancelled, BCS will report school closings to television stations KMTV (3), WOWT (6), KETV (7), and KPTM (42).  BCS will also post information on its website and will call, text, and email parents and guardians of all students.
