Reye's Syndrome

Reye's Syndrome

 

Reye's syndrome is a potentially fatal disease that can cause damage to many organs, including the brain and   liver. It is associated with aspirin consumption by children with viral diseases such as chickenpox.  For this reason, aspirin and aspirin containing products will not be administered at school without written permission from a parent/guardian and a physician.
