More than 6,500 PPS Staff Report Being Fully Vaccinated9/23/2021
Dear PPS Families and Students,
We are pleased to share that more than 6,500 PPS staff have reported being fully vaccinated. As the first K-12 school district in the state of Oregon to announce vaccine requirements for all staff, we know the importance of everyone doing their part to end this pandemic by getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
All PPS staff are required to be vaccinated by October 18, 2021. To date, 94.70% of PPS staff have indicated that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, with a 89.25% response rate (*as of September 22).
Our non-responders (10.75%) are primarily employees who are not currently active and/or new hires. By removing known inactive employees from our total, our response rate for active employees is 94%.
Staff who are not vaccinated must test for COVID-19 on a weekly basis.
We look forward to sharing an update after October 18.
Chief Human Resources Officer
