At least 12 students in the Delaware Valley School District have been
diagnosed with hand-foot-&-mouth disease (HFMD), a viral illness that
can cause fever, poor appetite, and painful sores, blisters, or
rashes.

Delaware Valley Superintendent John Bell said 4 football players at
the Dingman-Delaware Middle School were diagnosed with the illness
last week [week of 10 Sep 2012], causing school officials to cancel a
scheduled game on 13 Sep 2012. Notes about the disease have been sent
home to parents of middle school players afterward, Bell said.

Bell said 5 football players and one cheerleader at Delaware Valley
High School later came down with the illness. On Wednesday [19 Sep
2012], 2 students and possibly a third in the elementary schools also
showed signs of infection.

Bell said symptoms include fever, sore throats, and skin rashes. The
illness spreads through direct contact.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, HFMD is
caused by a coxsackievirus. It's rarely serious, but the virus can
remain in the body for weeks after symptoms have gone away.

Bell said that no one has been hospitalized, and the football players
first diagnosed were on the road to recovery. Bell said custodial
crews sterilized equipment and sports facilities last week and asked
all football players to clean all their clothes and equipment.
Custodial crews also have cleaned areas frequently touched, such as
light switches and door handles. Custodians will clean elementary
school classrooms where kids have been diagnosed. "We'll continue to
sterilize everything every night this week, spraying and wiping," said
Bell.
