Ebola Virus Information

​​​​​We have had no cases in the Pacific Northwest. President Obama has made control of Ebola a top national security priority, and we as a nation have spent more than $100 million fighting this outbreak since the first cases were reported in March 2014 in Africa. Our national health system has the capacity and expertise to quickly detect and contain this disease and is working with states and school districts to ensure the safety of our students and school employees.
