Great News - NO MEASLES!

Posted on 24 June 2016

I have just been informed by the MidCentral Public Health Service that the laboratory result we have been waiting on is negative for measles.

That means everyone can come out of isolation and undertake their normal activities through the weekend.

We thank everybody for their cooperation and support during this time.

Measles Information

Posted on 23 June 2016

Messages re measles for Parents and children at Levin East

To all parents and caregivers


I have just received news that we have a SUSPECTED case of measles at Levin East School. The person concerned was at school this week before signs of any infection were showing. However, I have been advised that during this time this person could have been infectious and is now at home recovering. In the circumstances we have no option other than to close the school tomorrow, 24th June. We are informing our parents through a newsletter, along with messages on the school website, Facebook page and the school app. 

The public health service is currently assessing the vaccination status of all our students  using the National Immunisation Database and the school information that parents have provided. This assessment will be completed tomorrow Friday 24th June.

We will know if it is a confirmed case or not by late Friday. Up to date information will be available on the school website, Facebook page, School app and on the school office door.
If the results confirm measles, those students without evidence of two doses of MMR will need to stay in isolation until informed further. In most cases isolation will be required until the end of 6 July.

Those students with evidence of immunity will be able to return to school on Monday 27th June.

Staying in home isolation means just that. Do not leave the home to go to school, work, to meet with friends or family, to go to any public places, sports or community events or gatherings. This is to protect those members of our community who are most vulnerable to the disease, including babies, pregnant women, cancer patients and others who are unable to be immunised.

Measles can spread to others before you start to feel unwell, and several days before the rash appears. This means that you may be asked to stay in home isolation even if you feel completely well. To do otherwise puts other people at risk. 

It is our intention to keep you well informed and we have attached the following documents
Media Release from the district health board.
Information sheet regarding measles from mid central health.

The first priority of Mid Central Health and the Levin East Board is the wellbeing of all our students. This will inevitably cause inconvenience to you all and we thank you in advance for your support in this matter.
