Superintendent Marty O'Shea has posted his Welcome Message to the Longmeadow community on the Superintendent's page of the website:
Longmeadow Boards of Health has received confirmation from state public health officials that mosquito samples collected in the Greater Springfield area have tested positive for West Nile Virus.
Residents are urged to follow the following precautions to protect themselves from mosquito bites from now through the first “hard” frost (approximately mid-October):
1. Apply insect repellent to any exposed skin and permethrin to clothing when you are out of doors. Repellents containing DEET-compounds are considered the most effective.
2. Avoid outdoor activities at the times of day when the mosquitos carrying these diseases are most active, especially in the early morning hours and beginning at dusk through the hours of darkness.
3. If possible, wear long sleeves, socks, and long pants when out of doors
4. Remove any sources of water around the home such as empty containers and barrels. Clean out bird baths twice/week. Clear blocked gutters. Remove tires from outdoor area where they may trap rain water. Keep swimming pool circulation systems running continuously.
5. Repair holes in screens
The Boards will update the residents as new mosquito surveillance information becomes available or revised recommendations are issued during the remainder of the summer and early fall.
Parents are invited to participate in a survey from our food service provider of school lunches. A link to the survey is provided here: Whitsons Food Service Survey
Dear Longmeadow Community:
This is the time of year when we like parents to review "stranger danger" with their children. The police chief, John Stankiewitz, has posted the a message on the LPD Facebook page. Please take time to read it and discuss with your children.
