Acerca del sarampión:

  • El sarampión es una enfermedad viral contagiosa que puede propagarse por el aire cuando una persona enferma con sarampión tose o estornuda. También puede propagarse por contacto directo con la secreción nasal y saliva de alguien enfermo con sarampión.
  • Los síntomas del sarampión comienzan con fiebre, tos, secreción nasal y ojos rojos, seguidos de una erupción roja que generalmente comienza en la cabeza o la cara y se extiende al resto del cuerpo.
  • Las personas son contagiosas con el sarampión durante cuatro días antes de que aparezca la erupción y hasta cuatro días después de que aparezca la erupción.
    Después de que una persona susceptible está expuesta al sarampión, los síntomas generalmente se desarrollan en 1 a 2 semanas, pero pueden desarrollar hasta 3 semanas.
  • Las complicaciones del sarampión incluyen infección del oído, infección pulmonar y, en casos raros, inflamación del cerebro.
  • Aproximadamente 1 de cada 1000 niños mueren de sarampión.
  • Cualquier persona que no sea inmune al sarampión y crea que tiene síntomas de sarampión debe comunicarse con su proveedor de atención médico o atención de urgencia por teléfono para hacer arreglos para evitar exponer a otros al virus.
  • Las personas se consideran inmunes al sarampión si se cumple alguna de las siguientes condiciones:

About the Boundary Adjustment Process

The district has created resources to help explain the boundary adjustment process. If adopted by the Salem-Keizer School Board on February 12, the proposed boundary adjustments would go into effect in Fall 2019.

Parents and guardians of students who could change schools because of boundary adjustment will receive a letter soon as firm information is available — prior to the Feb. 12 vote if possible, or immediately after the vote.

Here’s a timeline that describes what to expect, in English and Spanish. The boxes on the timeline include information about the process.

These resources on the district website show proposed changes.

McKay Delegates Elected to Office

A group of McKay students attended the YMCA Youth & Government Pre- Leg event on Saturday January 12 at West Salem High School. Our small delegation  represented their measures and themselves in true Royal Scot fashion! Andrew Kalmen and Raquel Marques-Guerrero both ran for office and were elected. Andrew will serve as a committee chair and Raquel will serve as the Clerk of the House when delegations from seven schools meet in February for the mock legislative session at the State Capitol.

Students become members of the House or the Senate and are privileged to use the actual House and Senate Chambers during the session. The measures passed by the youth delegates are presented to our elected Representatives and Senators for consideration during the Oregon Legislature.

The McKay delegation has a long history of distinction with the program and this year will only add to the legacy!

Go Scots!
