Revised Return Dates by School: 

The ASD continues to work closely with Public Health Seattle & King County on the mumps outbreak in King County.

As of January 3, there are 117 confirmed/probable mumps cases in King County.  Public Health Seattle & King County continues to investigate new cases.

Our goal is to get our students back to school. To support this goal, in consultation with the health department, we will be doing a school-by-school return to get students back to learning as quickly as possible.  Schools where there have been no cases and where the 25-day exclusion window has passed can return to school January 4.  

All other schools have return dates in the next few weeks.  The details are below.

Please be advised that if another mumps case is identified at a school where students are returning, they possibly will be excluded for another 25-day window and the dates below will be changed. This is current as of January 3 only.

We will be monitoring this very closely with the health department and making decisions daily on the status of each of our 22 schools.  We will contact families via email and/or a phone call from the school nurse/health tech if the exclusion becomes necessary again.

Students who receive a dose of MMR may return to school with verification of the immunization.

Email update sent to families and staff 12/2/16 
 
 

Dear Auburn School District Staff & Families:

 

Public Health – Seattle & King County continues to work with families in Auburn about possible instances of the mumps.  The situation is evolving and is a top priority of the health department.

 

As of this morning, there are 16 confirmed/probable cases in Auburn. At the health department’s direction, any staff or student with mumps symptoms should not attend school for five days after your glands start to swell because you are contagious at this time.  Even if not officially diagnosed, anyone with mumps symptoms should not come to school.

 

Mumps Symptoms are:

 

.               Fever

.               Headache

.               Muscle aches

.               Tiredness

.               Loss of appetite

.               Swollen cheeks or jaw

 

 

The health department is working with the Auburn School District’s nursing staff to identify students who have not been vaccinated and the appropriate steps those families should take to protect their children and slow the spread of mumps, including keeping their children away from school until they can get at least one vaccination. There may be additional unrecognized cases in other schools, as well as in the community in general.   All families need to take precautions and contact your healthcare provider if you have any concerns or have symptoms.  In most of the identified cases, the individuals were immunized.

 

The Auburn School District is working very closely with Public Health – Seattle & King County and we will continue to update you as we learn more.

 

Thank you for supporting our school community.

 
  
 
Email update sent to families and staff 11/30/16.
 

Dear Auburn School District Staff & Families:

 

Yesterday, under the guidance of Public Health – Seattle & King County, we provided their notification to families as quickly as possible once confirmed cases of mumps were identified in the Auburn School District. At this time we would like to notify you that the confirmed cases were identified at Pioneer Elementary, Olympic Middle School, Auburn High School and West Auburn High School.

 

The health department advises that there may be cases unrecognized in other schools in King County, as well as in the community in general, and all families need to take precautions:

·         please do not have your child attend school when sick with mumps symptoms (fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, loss of appetite, and swollen cheeks or jaw)

·         see a healthcare provider if those symptoms develop, and

·         be up-to-date on Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine.

 

We strive to provide timely and accurate information to our families. Please be aware our schools are taking Universal Precautions to support your child's healthy classrooms. We will continue to keep you informed as Public Health – Seattle & King County continues to keep us updated. Thank you for supporting our school community.

 

If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s health, please contact your healthcare provider.

 
 
 
Update from Public Health-Seattle & King County-- 11/30/16
