Health officials are still working to notify anyone who may have come in contact with an Elkhart boy, who died of bacterial meningitis last week.

Officials are encouraging parents to watch for symptoms that include sudden fevers, headaches, a stiff neck and a red rash.

Meanwhile, Elkhart health and school officials are trying to ease parents' fears.
