Dear Brent Community,
DC's Department of Health has issued a letter to our community after we reported a case of Scarlett Fever in a child at Brent this week. Scarlet Fever is caused by bacteria called group A Streptococcus or group A strep. Please take a moment to read the letter and review the fact sheet. Links to each document are below:

Scarlett Fever Fact Sheet
In addition to regular cleaning, Brent’s custodial team has disinfected high touch surfaces, tables, and chairs in the classroom with the case of Scarlett Fever, and will conduct a deep cleaning over the mid-Winter Break.
If you have any questions, please feel to reach out to Brent’s school nurse, Ms. Lee at (202) 698-3367 and Jlee6@cnmc.org.
Thank you for taking the time to review this information.
