Flu season is coming to Oregon - it's not too late to get vaccinated! Read the District article here and a letter from the Washington County Heatlh Department on influenza and norovirus here; and for links to flu resources and prevention tips, click the Resources tab. Immunization Exclusion Day is February 20, 2013. To see the list of immunizations your child needs, click the Oregon Immunization and Dosages Flyer under the Resources tab.
Our goal is to provide a safe and healthy environment for your child. Staff is available at every school to assist students with health needs and dispense medication as needed per doctor’s prescription and parent instructions. Your school can provide you with their health and medication procedures.
Oregon state law requires that students have received appropriate vaccinations for school entry. To view the State of Oregon’s complete list of Immunization and Dosage Requirements, click here.
Kindergartners and other students new to the District will not be allowed to start school without the required immunizations.
School administrators are required to exclude from school those students not having proof of at least one dose of each of the above-noted immunizations. The only exceptions are those children who have health problems that would prevent them from receiving the inoculations and those whose religious teachings oppose immunizations.
Immunization Exclusion Day - annual date designated by the State Health Department - when students without complete immunizations or exemptions are sent home and not allowed to return to school until the requirements are completed.
For the 2012-13 school year, exclusion day is Wednesday, February 20, 2013.
Immunizations may be obtained from your medical provider. Also, the Washington County Health & Human Services (HHS) Department operates several clinics that offer a variety of services, including immunizations. Please visit the Washington County HHS web site or contact them at (503) 846-4955 for more information about services and locations.
If your child is diagnosed with a communicable disease, please notify the school as soon as possible. Some students have medical conditions and/or compromised immune systems that can become life threatening when exposed to certain illnesses.
