Please Help Us Plan and Respond by Registering Your Child’s COVID-19 Vaccinations12/16/2021
Dear PPS Families,
As more of your students get vaccinated against COVID-19, we want to ask you to share that information with us to help us make more efficient decisions on positive cases and quarantining, and to make informed plans for the future.
If your child has received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine and is considered fully vaccinated, please enter that information into ParentVUE, our student data platform for families.
In September, we conducted a survey asking if your student had received a COVID-19 vaccine. Since then, vaccines for children ages 5 to 11 have been approved. We would like to gather more comprehensive data on how many of our students are vaccinated. The information will help us make informed decisions about how we conduct the rest of the school year and beyond.
Having the vaccination status of individual students will also help us more quickly identify students who need to be quarantined after close contact with an infected individual. Students who are fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine after a close contact as long as they remain symptom free.
Please note that if your child received a vaccine at a district-sponsored event on a PPS campus, that information is not automatically conveyed to ParentVUE. If your student was vaccinated at one of those events, please take a few moments to update your child’s status.
To update your children’s COVID-19 vaccine status, you will need their vaccine card. You can upload an image of the card into ParentVUE by following these simple instructions. You can also take, or have your student take, a copy of the vaccine card to your school office.
