Measles Advisory

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 stay informed of how to prevent measles and recognize signs of measles by reading the Measles Family Advisory letter distributed by PPS.

Weekly Parent Coffee

We welcome you to the Rosa Parks' Family Resource Room on Friday mornings between 8:30 and 9:30 am to share a cup of coffee and a treat, meaningful conversations and information from our featured weekly guest speaker. Conducted by Mrs. Lovings, the “Weekly Parent Coffee” is well attended and offers information on a wide variety of topics, including:

  • How to get involved at Rosa Parks
  • Home Ownership
