SPS Student Health Services: Measles

1/29/19
Dear Families,

There is currently one confirmed case of measles reported in King County. We do not currently have any cases of measles in Seattle Public Schools.
Please monitor your child for signs of measles (fever, diarrhea, coughing, runny nose, red and watery eyes, tiredness with a rash that begins on the face and spreads to the entire body). See King County’s Measles Fact Sheet for more information in multiple languages.

Measles is extremely contagious, if your child has measles, or you suspect they may have measles, please keep them home and contact your health care provider.
The best protection against measles for yourself and your children is the MMR vaccine. The MMR vaccine is available from your healthcare provider, and for SPS enrolled students at one of our 25 school-based health center sites. See the list of school-based health centers. If an SPS-enrolled student contracts measles, the King County Department of Health has the authority to exclude the infected student, and students without immunizations from school.

If you have questions about your child’s MMR vaccination status, please contact your health care provider, or Health Services at 206-252-0750.

Sincerely,
Student Health Services
