What You Should Know About Hand, Foot And Mouth Disease

There are some horrifying images out there ... this one is mild in comparison.

There are some horrifying images out there … this one is mild in comparison.

Today it was reported that several students at Derby High School were diagnosed with Hand Foot and Mouth disease.

It sounds like something that’s made up, but it is very real. The disease affects children younger than 10, often those under 5 years (in child care centers), and is spread from person to person contact. Still anyone can contract the disease.

Practicing good hygiene is important at any age and may help protect your child from this commonly mild, but potentially dangerous disease.

Our Amity students interact with those at Derby High School for athletic events and because of the person to person contact, we’re offering some information about Hand Foot and Mouth disease from the Mayo Clinic website.

NOTE: The Derby-Shelton Football game has been postponed due to this situation.
