Fern Ridge School District has a policy to inform parents when potential health concerns arise in our schools. At least 1 individual has been diagnosed with Pertussis (whooping cough) at Fern Ridge Middle School. We are obliged by law to keep the identity of the ill individual confidential. This is NOT a medical emergency. The Lane County Health Department, in partnership with school officials, is responding to the situation. All scheduled district activities will continue as planned including the student dance at FRMS this evening.
Here is a link to an informational letter for parents: Pertussis Parent Letter
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the district office at 541-935-2253 ext 1203
