The North Cedar Community School District strives to provide compassionate and comprehensive health services for your child. We employ one full-time district nurse, and each building has trained staff members who can meet a variety of health care needs for children.
A case of measles has been reported in Iowa. This is the first case in our state since 2011, and it is a good reminder to make sure that your family’s vaccines are up-to-date. The measles vaccine is highly effective (the patient with measles was not vaccinated), and all school-aged children should have two MMR doses by the time they start kindergarten.
If we identify a case of measles in our school, public health officials will require all unvaccinated students and staff to remain at home until 21 days after their last possible exposure to measles. Please make sure you protect your family. Vaccines save lives.
For more information on measles, please visit the Iowa Department of Public Health website, contact your local Health Department, and view our measles information sheet.
