DC's Department of Health has issued a letter to our community after we reported four cases of “gastroenteritis” (nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea) in children at Brent this week. Please take a moment to read the letter and review the fact sheet. Links to each document are below:

In addition to regular cleaning, Brent’s custodial team has disinfected high touch surfaces, tables, and chairs in classrooms with confirmed cases of the gastroenteritis illness, and will continue doing so throughout next week.
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.
