Measles Information

News of a single measles case in Oregon (Lane County) has refocused attention on communicable disease. PPS wants families to know the protocols we follow in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority to keep students well. An important first step is prevention: be sure your children’s immunizations are current and that their schools have a current immunization record. The measles vaccine is the single most effective way to shield your child from this illness.

Please read this Measles Family Advisory.
