Nurse & Health Information
For parents & staff
There has been a case of measles reported in Iowa. This is in northeast Iowa in an unvaccinated person who has had recent international travel. This is the first reported case in the state of Iowa since 2011. This is a good time to remind you to make sure your and your family's vaccines are up to date. The measles vaccine is highly effective and all school aged children should have two MMR doses by the time they start kindergarten.
If a case of measles is identified in our school, public health officials will require all unvaccinated students and staff to remain at home until 21 days after their last possible exposure to measles. Please take this time to make sure your family is protected.
