Important Announcement about a Confirmed Mumps Case at KHIS

 Aloha,
 
An individual at Kahuku High and Intermediate has been confirmed as having had an infection with the mumps virus. A letter is attached for you to read and a copy of the letter was placed in your box this morning. Today at 9am, copies of the letter will be distributed to your classes to pass out to your Period 7 students. We are working closely with the Department of Health Immunization Branch on this matter. They are asking all students, staff, parents, and guardians to do the following:
1. Be updated on your immunization records (2 MMR shots).
2. If you have some of the symptoms described in the letter see your physician right away.
3. Everyone 10-60 is strongly recommended to receive an MMR Outbreak Dose from their medical provider.
4. Lastly, practice good hygiene and health habits by washing your hands and keeping your work area clean and sanitized.
(See attached file: Mumps Student, Staff, and Parent Letter 12.20.17.pdf)

If you have any questions please come and see me. May you all have a wonderful and restful break. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
