• Preventing Illness and Contagious Disease in School

    Starting a new school year is an exciting time. Schools provide a safe and healthy learning environment for students to see their old friends, welcome new friends, and learn new things. These slides provide useful health information about illness prevention and how the school responds to contagious disease so that your student can stay healthy and ready to learn. 

    All of us have a role in preventing communicable disease: 

    • Public health continues to emphasize personal responsibility to protect oneself and others, primarily through prevention. 

    • PPS’s communicable disease response assumes shared district- and individual- responsibility

    Review the 2023-24 Family Guides below to learn more about how PPS will work with you to keep students, families and staff healthy this year.
