Letters were sent home last week with students at RESA Middle School about a confirmed case of pertussis, or whooping cough, at the school. 

In the letters (English, Spanish), parents are encouraged to contact their child's school nurse, the RPS 205 Health Services Office, or the Winnebago County Health Department. The letter also encourages parents to look for symptoms of the illness.
