Hello McKay Community,

Salem-Keizer Public Schools is working with the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon Department of Education to determine crisis response plans that align with forthcoming CDC guidance. That guidance specifically will cover exclusion and closure recommendations. In the event of a diagnosed case in the area, we will follow their direction along with that of the local health departments to ensure we’re taking every step possible to keep our community safe.

In the meantime, we’ll continue to promote healthy behaviors like frequent handwashing that align with current CDC recommendations.

The attached “Am I too sick for school” documents in English and Spanish may also be useful while we await further direction.

Thank you,

Rob Schoepper
