McGregor Independent School District No. 4 issued a notice to parents Monday that some students at the high school level have Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease.

The school asked parents to look for the following:

• runny nose

• low-grade fever

• sore throat

• blister-like rash in mouth

Parents are asked to keep students home until the fever is gone, contact the school and have the child tested for COVID-19, since symptoms are similar.

It make take 3-6 days for symptoms to start after infection.
