Norovirus Update

Norovirus Update for John Muir Community
Posted on 03/09/2017

John Muir will be closed Friday, March 10. Although the building is clean and ready for students, many of the students and staff are still sick. In an effort to limit spread of the virus, school will be closed. School will open Monday, March 13.

After a number of students exhibited symptoms of norovirus on Wednesday at John Muir Elementary School, we decided to close school out of an abundance of caution.

The King County Department of Health offers guidelines for disinfecting surfaces, and our team has been working diligently to sanitize the school and school buses. This event has been isolated to the one school.

Please visit the King County Public Health Department website for more information about symptoms.

Per the medical recommendations, if your child exhibits these symptoms, please keep them home from school.
