“Measles is a highly infectious and serious illness. If a student or staff member is diagnosed with measles in our school, other students and staff (teaching, administration, sports coaches and any other staff that have face to face contact with students) will be required to have written evidence that they have either had two doses of measles vaccine (MMR) after they were 12 months of age or doctor diagnosed measles. This information can be found in your Wellchild or Plunket book or from a print out from your doctor. People born before 1 January 1969 are assumed to have immunity to measles as it was circulating in the community at this time.
Anyone who does not have evidence of measles immunity will be required to stay off school until 14 days after their contact with the person diagnosed with measles. “
Could be a challenge proving you have been immunized.
“Teaching staff may need to think how we can easily provide work electronically if there is a school closure or groups of students are aware for 14 days if not vaccinated“
Technology to the rescue… but will still require both thought and re setting expectations of students that they would need to do school work at home. Streaming the lesson might be a feasible option.
