Measles Update for the morning of Friday, Jan. 30
As of this time, there are no confirmed cases of measles for students attending San Rafael City Schools. We realize a media outlet reported outside of San Rafael High School (SRHS), but the two confirmed cases in Marin County are not SRHS students.
We will continue to work closely with Marin Health and Human Services to monitor the situation and keep you informed. As a reminder, if your child is unvaccinated or cannot provide laboratory conformation of immunity and there is a case in their school, they will be excluded from attending school for 21 days to protect themselves and to limit further spread of disease.

Actualización del sarampión para la mañana del viernes, 30 de enero
Hasta el momento, no hay casos confirmados de sarampión entre los estudiantes que asisten a las Escuelas de la Ciudad de San Rafael. Sabemos que un medio de comunicación informó en las afueras de la Escuela Preparatoria San Rafael (SRHS), pero los dos casos confirmados en el condado de Marin no son estudiantes de SRHS.
Vamos a seguir trabajando en estrecha colaboración con los Servicios Humanos y de la Salud de Marin para supervisar la situación y los mantendremos informados. A modo de recordatorio, si su hijo no está vacunado o no pueda proporcionar conformación de laboratorio de inmunidad y hay un caso en su escuela, su hijo será excluido de asistir a la escuela durante 21 días para protegerse a sí mismo y para limitar la propagación de la enfermedad.

Upcoming Visioning Meetings to Help Shape Master Plan
SRCS is in the midst of a Master Facilities Planning (MFP) process. The MFP is a roadmap of improvements that is intended to address deficiencies and provide greater capacity for more students given the level of growth that has been occurring in the District and is projected to continue K-12 over the next several years.
Visioning meetings have been scheduled for the architects to meet with staff, students, parents and members of the community. The meetings are an opportunity for the SRCS community to review and provide feedback on design options for several of our growing schools.
The San Rafael High School and Madrone High School Visioning Meeting is scheduled for Jan. 29 at 4 pm in the SRHS Library. The Terra Linda High School session is set for Feb. 4 at 4 pm in the TLHS Library.

SRCS is introducing Infinite Campus, a new student information system. Infinite Campus offers a Parent Portal, which gives up-to-date, secure online access to student information. The Parent Portal is currently open to parents/guardians with children is grades 6-12. The week of Sept. 29, each parent/guardian will receive a letter with a secure Activation Key that is unique to each parent/guardian to set-up their own account.
The transition to Infinite Campus is a key part of our efforts to enhance communication, transparency and the integration of technology tools that promise greater effectiveness and engagement for parents, students and staff. As with any change, we are all learning how to use this new tool. We are monitoring this implementation closely so that we can provide additional support and training as needed.
