 Two students at San Diego schools were diagnosed with pertussis, a respiratory disease also known as whooping cough that can easily spread in public settings, the county Health and Human Services Agency reported Friday. The diagnosed students were a 15-year-old who attends Canyon Crest Academy in the San Dieguito Union High School District and a 10-year-old at Sage Canyon Elementary School in the Del Mar Union School District. Both were up-to-date on their pertussis vaccinations, county health officials said.
