IMPORTANT Immunization Information for Students
IS YOUR STUDENT UP TO DATE WITH THEIR IMMUNIZATIONS?
IMMUNIZATION EXCLUSION DAY IS FEBRUARY 21, 2024
Each year in January and February, all schools and childcare facilities in Oregon must
report the immunization status of their students to the Health Department.
Immunizations are required by state law for children and students in attendance at public
and private schools, preschools, childcare facilities and Head Start programs in Oregon.
Children must have all state required immunizations, or a medical or a non-medical
exemption to stay enrolled.
If a child is behind on shots, TTSD schools will send the family a letter via postal mail so
they have a chance to catch up before the immunization deadline.
Failure to meet Oregon’s requirements by February 21, 2024 will result in students being
excluded from school until their immunizations are up-to-date.
For more information about required vaccines, where to obtain required vaccinations, and
medical and non-medical exemptions, please visit:
- Your student’s health care provider
- Oregon Health Authority School and Child Care Immunization requirements website
- Neighborhood Health Center – School Based Health Center at Tualatin High School
- Your student’s school nurse - Lisa Church, 503-431-4190, email@example.com

Plan de Servicios de Salud de 2023 y Recursos
We are very fortunate to have wonderful community members and families who want to be part of our students' education by volunteering! With that comes the responsibility of making sure our schools and students are safe at all times.
Anyone seeking to be a volunteer for our schools and or buildings needs to be background checked and offered the vector training. If a community member and or parent wants to volunteer, they have to go through the volunteer process and be cleared before doing so.
Volunteers and after school events:
The volunteer process must be followed if the person will be interacting with our students. Whether the volunteering will take place during school or after school, the parent/community member must undergo the volunteer requirements as outlined on our website. This includes all school and or PTO/PSO sponsored events.
We are very busy with background checks for new hires and volunteers. Please get your volunteer applications submitted sooner than later so you are approved for activities throughout the year. Volunteer applications are good for 3 years, this includes the background check and the training.
Covid Vaccine Cards are no longer required!
Reporting an absence
To report your student's absence please call our attendance line, 503-431-4470, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need to make a change to your student's transportation or report an absence, please send an email to email@example.com. The deercreekparent email account has been set up for emails only from parents/guardians and are easily seen for updates. Please do not use the deercreekoffice or dcoffice email address because information can get easily missed. Thank you for your help with this!
