An Update About Infectious-Disease Protection
(Para ver en Español oprima aquí)

Protecting students from infectious disease is a top priority for the Medford School District. As part of that mission, we want to provide factual information to parents, students and employees.

Recently we have received questions about the steps we are taking to guard against the Ebola virus.  This communication is a response to those questions.

At this time, our Ebola protection measures are the same as those we follow to prevent the spread of other serious infectious diseases. These practices are consistent with federal and state guidelines. The practices are outlined below:
  • We work closely with local health officials and school nurses to ensure that our procedures are up to date.
  • We work closely with custodians and other school staff to make sure they have the training and supplies they need.
  • We clean classrooms and other rooms in schools every day.
  • Staff are trained to use extra precautions and disinfectants when cleaning up bodily fluids.
  • We teach students age-appropriate health rules, such as regular hand-washing.
  • We instruct parents to keep sick children at home.
  • We separate, check and send home anyone who shows signs of illness at school (Parent Handbook, pg. 21).
We have received Ebola-specific guidance from the Oregon Health Authority and Jackson County Health Department. In the meantime, you can find more Ebola information on the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/index.html.

We appreciate your interest in this topic. If you would like more information, you may contact the district office at (541) 842 3636 of Jackson County Health at (541) 774-8045.
