CLEVELAND — Four students at Woodland Academy have been diagnosed with Impetigo.

The administration, along with White Hat Management, says the school is following all the proper procedures for the outbreak, including isolating students and sanitizing the building.

School officials have also alerted parents to the outbreak.

The Mayo Clinic described impetigo as a highly contagious skin infection that mainly affects infants and children; it usually appears as red sores on the face, especially around a child’s nose and mouth.

According to White Hat Management, the school will continue to undergo deep sanitation procedures in addition to its routine cleaning.
