Chicken Pox

Dear Parents,

Kindly have a look at the info below

http://mrc.naxxar.skola.edu.mt/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Chicken-pox-leaflet.pdf

Infected children and adults are required to stay at home for until the spots become dry and crusted, after which they can return to school or work. They should therefore be seen by a doctor prior to going back to school or work to verify this.

Thus, the school is asking for another doctor’s note besides the Medical Certificate that certifies them fit to attend school.    This is being done without prejudice for  prevention from this infectious disease.
