Norovirus Prevention Tips
A Norovirus strain is expected to hit hard this year.  Following is information from our school nurse to help prevent the spread of the Norovirus  The "stomach bug" (an example;  the norovirus) can cause severe onset of vomiting, diarrhea episodes, dehydration & stomach pain/cramping.  The Center for Disease Control recommends:
  • WASH HANDS for 20 seconds, especially before preparing foods & after toileting
  • CLEAN SURFACES - Use bleach-based cleaner or other disinfectant
  • WASH LAUNDRY - Remove & wash soiled linens and clothes immediately
  • USE GLOVES to pick up soiled materials or when wiping down counters
  • STAY HOME WHEN SICK and stay home 2 days more after symptoms of nausea, vomiting, stomach pain stop.
  • Avoid contact directly with others, as the Norovirus can be spread long after symptoms are gone, up to two weeks.

Immunization Exemption Rates for WOMS
The State of Oregon now requires schools to notify parents of their immunization exemption rates for each  required vaccine.  These rates will now be posted on our school's website, in our school office, and sent home to parents twice a year.  The rates attached are the exemption rates as of last spring.  Schools are required to publish this information twice each school year.  Approximately the second week of March we will post the updated rates.  These new rates are collected and tallied in mid-February 2017.
