After some Monroe-Woodbury High School students were diagnosed with whooping cough, the school district is informing families about symptoms to look for if their child does become sick.

The Monroe-Woodbury Central School District is not saying how many students have gotten sick with the disease.

A statement posted on the district website says: “The district is taking all necessary precautions to ensure the health and safety of our students in the high school, including reaching out to students who we believe may have been exposed.”

According to the Orange County Department of Health, symptoms of a whooping cough are similar to the common cold such as sneezing, fever, mild cough and a runny nose. A cough can become more severe if symptoms persist.

People are urged to wash their hands and cover their mouths to prevent the spread of whooping cough.
