Little Cypress-Mauriceville Administrators were notified that a first grader at Mauriceville Elementary has a confirmed case of bacterial meningitis.

Every parent of children in that child’s class will receive a phone call and every student in the District will receive a letter to take home, informing parents of the suspected illness, symptoms to look for in their own children, and what to do if a child exhibits those symptoms. Parents should contact their family doctor for additional information. At this time, no other child has exhibited symptoms of the illness.

Those who want more detailed information on meningitis can go to, select “Administration,” “District Departments,” “Health Services,” “Infectious Diseases,” and then open the Meningitis file.
