Miss Olga's Mid-Year Message...

Dear Falcon Parents,

We at Edward A. Hall Middle School would like to wish all of you a wonderful Holiday Season. Please know that our vacation begins on Monday, December 22nd. Students will be excused on Friday, December 19th at 12:47; this means that this day will be a minimum day.

 It is very important that you check with your student regarding any unfinished assignments. We want all of our Falcon Students to be successful and to soar academically. We strive to provide every opportunity to help your students by providing help during lunch and afterschool. Students have been much more responsible in coming to school on time, however, we still have some chronic tardies. Please help all of us by ensuring that your students come every day ready to learn and with their assignments done. Check School Loop for the latest assignments and progress for your student. If you do not know how to access this information, ask your student or come to the Parent Volunteer Center and ask Brenda Guzman to help you.

Finally, let’s welcome in the New Year, 2015, with Peace In Our Hearts! Have a wonderful family time. We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated staff working at E A Hall and such kind and loving parents. See you all back on Monday, January 12th, 2015.


Olga de Santa Anna, Principal

PUBLIC HEALTH ADVISORY: Pertussis (whooping Cough) outbreak in Santa Cruz County

Measles Vaccination Important


Jan. 28, 2015
Dear Parents,
We are writing to update you on the measles situation in California and in Santa Cruz County, and to recommend that everyone in the community review their vaccination records and get the measles vaccine if needed.
As of January 26th, 73 people in California have been confirmed with measles. Of those, 50 (68%) have been linked to Disneyland theme parks in Anaheim, California. While we have no confirmed cases in Santa Cruz County, due to the high number of cases within California, measles may be circulating undetected in our community, although we don’t know how widely.

We want to reassure parents that there is no need to be alarmed. If your children have been vaccinated with two MMR’s, they are protected from catching measles. However, a measles outbreak serves as an important reminder that everyone does need to make sure that they are either immune or have been vaccinated against measles.

Measles is highly contagious yet highly preventable through vaccinations. Measles can be prevented by the combination MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that children get two doses: the first dose at 12–15 months of age, and the second dose at 4–6 years of age. Measles vaccination protects not just the person being vaccinated, but the community around them, including babies less than 12 months old who are too young to be vaccinated.

Adolescents and adults also need to be up to date on vaccinations. People born before 1957 are considered immune as they likely had measles as children and developed natural immunity. If you have any questions about your vaccination status, consult your doctor, who may elect to give you another MMR vaccination or perform a blood test to check for immunity to measles.

For more information on measles, please visit the CDC’s measles information page at www.cdc.gov/measles.

Padres de familia,

Esta carta es para informar le sobre el problema de sarampión en California y en el Condado de Santa Cruz, y para recomendar que todos en la comunidad revisen sus registros de vacunación y si es necesario, reciban la vacuna contra el sarampión.


A partir del 26 de enero, se han confirmado 73 casos de sarampión en California, desde el comienzo del año. De esos 73 casos, 50 (68%) han sido relacionados con el parque de diversiones Disneyland en Anaheim California. Aunque no tenemos casos confirmados en el condado de Santa Cruz, debido al alto número de casos dentro de California, significa que el sarampión podría estar circulando en nuestra comunidad sin ser detectado, aunque aún no sabemos qué tan ampliamente.


Queremos asegurar a los padres de familia que no hay motivos para alarmarse. Si sus niños han sido vacunados con dos vacunas del triple viral (sarampión, rubéola y paperas) llamada SRP por sus siglas en español o MMR por sus siglas en inglés, están protegidos contra el sarampión. Sin embargo, una epidemia de sarampión sirve como recordatorio de que todos debemos asegurarnos de que somos inmunes al sarampión, o que hayamos sido vacunados contra el sarampión.


El sarampión es muy contagioso, pero se puede prevenir con la vacuna. La vacuna que previene el sarampión es la combinación triple viral llamada SRP o MMR. Los Centros para el Control y Prevención de Enfermedades de los Estados Unidos (CDC), recomiendan que a los niños reciban 2 dosis de la vacuna. La primera dosis entre los 12 y 15 meses de edad, y la segunda entre los 4 y 6 años. La vacuna contra el sarampión no solo protege a la persona vacunada, sino que también a la comunidad en la que vive, incluyendo a los bebés de menores de 12 meses de edad que aún son muy pequeños para ser vacunados.


Los adolescentes y los adultos también tienen que estar al día con la vacuna. Personas que nacieron antes de 1957 son consideradas inmune, ya que probablemente tuvieron sarampión como los niños y desarrollan inmunidad natural. Si usted tiene alguna pregunta acerca de su estado de vacunación, consulte con su médico, quien puede elegir darle otra vacuna de MMR o mandar pedir una prueba de sangre para detectar la inmunidad al sarampión.


Para más información sobre el sarampión, por favor visite la página del CDC dedicada a información sobre el sarampión: www.cdc.gov/measles.
