The Oregon Health Authority requires that schools intending to resume in-person education or activities during the 2020-2021 school year submit student immunization records to the state. TTSD is committed to returning to in-person learning when the state metrics allow it.
Students whose immunizations are not complete, or who do not have an exemption for immunizations by February 17, 2021, will be excluded from participation in any in-person activities on school campuses. This includes, but is not limited to, in-school learning and extracurricular activities (such as sports, music, clubs, band, etc.).
Please contact your student’s health care provider to schedule an appointment for any missing immunizations. The TTSD School Based Health Centers also give immunizations by appointment:
Neighborhood Health Center @ Tualatin High School: 503-941-3180
The Virginia Garcia Health Center @ Tigard High School: 503-431-5775
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your school’s district nurse. The district’s RNs can also help you determine which immunizations may be needed:
If you are in need of bringing medication to the office, we encourage you to complete the forms prior to your arrival. We hope that will expedite the amount of time it will take you to drop off medication.
We want to remind you that it is Oregon State Law that parents must transport all medication to school, whether prescription or non-prescription. In addition, it is Oregon State Law that we must have parent consent and instructions in writing. TTSD has a form that meets this need. Medication Administration Record and Parent Consent.
In addition, there might be times that it is appropriate for a student to self-administer medication. If that is the case, the Principal, District Nurse, Parent and Student must all sign the Permission to Self Medicate.
