" A TERRITORY primary school pupil has caught scarlet fever.
The boy is being kept at home.
Education Department acting school operations head Alan Baillie said the boy's mother had contacted teachers to say her son had been diagnosed with the disease by two doctors at the GP super clinic in Palmerston during the Easter holidays.
"No other cases have been reported," he said. "The school has sent a letter home to parents as a precautionary measure."
