Peoria Notre Dame students are warned of a possible mumps exposure.
Principal Randy Simmons says the school sent out a letter to parents, saying players on the soccer team were potentially exposed to mumps.
“Tips on what to look for, just to notify them that we had a small section of our student body that was potentially exposed to student with mumps,” says Simmons.
A player on one of last week’s opponents had the disease. So far, no one has come down with mumps at the school. Simmons says nurses have the appropriate medicine to treat the disease at Peoria Notre Dame.
About 25 or 30 students are on the soccer team. Simmons says the school has contacted both the health department and the Catholic Diocese of Peoria.
