NH school staffer diagnosed with viral meningitis

LONDONDERRY, N.H. (AP) — A faculty member at Londonderry High School has been diagnosed with viral meningitis.

New Hampshire health officials said there is no public health issue at this time.

Londonderry School Supt. Nate Greenberg said the school is open and operating normally. The school's nurse called parents of students who might have had contact with the unnamed staff member now recovering without hospitalization

An elementary school teacher in the district was infected by viral meningitis last year.

Greenberg told WMUR-TV (http://bit.ly/SDf0RE) a letter was sent home to parents asking them to look for symptoms like high fever, headaches and stiff neck, along with nausea, vomiting, light sensitivity, rash, confusion or sleepiness.
