Mumps information in Tukwila schools
Jan. 19, 2017
Public health officials just informed our District Nurse that a student in the Tukwila School District had a recent case of the mumps (or, at the very least, had mumps-like symptoms). The student—who attends Foster High and has siblings at Showalter Middle and Thorndyke Elementary—has recovered and is no longer contagious. At this time, health officials are NOT recommending that any children or staff members be kept home from school for safety reasons.
We are notifying community members so that you can be vigilant in case any family members exhibit mumps symptoms, which include fever, headache, and swelling of the cheeks and jaw. If anyone develops these symptoms, please call your healthcare provider right away and tell them your family may have been exposed to the mumps. Your child should be in the clear by early next week, when the incubation period for this particular outbreak will be over.
A letter from Seattle King County Public Health has been sent home with every student (see below). If you have questions, please contact your health provider.
As always during this cold and flu season, please make sure your children wash their hands frequently, cover their coughs, stay home from school if they are sick, and remain up-to-date on all vaccination recommendations. Thank you.
Spike in flu cases: Keep kids home if sick!
Winter health reminders
Public Health officials are warning of a spike in flu activity this month—in fact, the number of people in hospital emergency departments with flu-like illnesses to-date is more than for the previous five years at this time of year, and we have not peaked yet. Please make sure to wash your hands frequently and get a flu shot, especially if you’re part of a vulnerable population (people with asthma, diabetes, heart disease …). To keep our school community healthy, please keep children home from school for at least 24 hours AFTER they have a fever or signs of a fever, without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.
Also be aware that a mumps outbreak recently occurred in south King County and pertussis is circulating through the community. It is critical for the health and safety of our students that everyone who attends a Tukwila school is up to date on his or her vaccinations. You will soon receive a letter from your school nurse if your student is out of compliance; there are many community resources that will provide the needed vaccinations in one visit for free or an affordable cost. Contact your school nurse if you have questions.
