Waimea Elementary School

Confirmation of Mumps

An individual at Waimea Elementary School has been confirmed as having had an infection with the
mumps virus and attended school for at least one day during the infectious period. As we are not
allowed to identify the individual due to the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
federal privacy law, we are addressing this as a universal precaution and are advising everyone to be
alert to this situation. The school is working closely with the Hawaiʻi Department of Health (DOH)
Immunization Branch to prevent the spread of the virus.
