A Great Place to Learn


  • Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease

    Currently, Scappoose schools are seeing an increased incidence of hand, foot, and mouth disease.

    Our school practices a variety of methods to help control the spread of a variety of diseases, including regularly sanitizing surfaces. Students and families are encouraged to wash their hands with soap and warm water and regular intervals, especially before and after eating. 

    If your children exhibit the following symptoms, we encourage you to keep them home from school to prevent sharing the virus with others. 

    • Fever
    • Sore throat
    • Feeling of being unwell (malaise)
    • Painful, red, blister-like lesions on the tongue, gums and inside of the cheeks
    • A red rash, without itching but sometimes with blistering, on the palms, soles and sometimes the buttocks
    • Irritability in infants and toddlers
    • Loss of appetite

    For additional information about the disease, please see this helpful information from the Mayo Clinic.


    If you have any questions, please contact our district nurse, Brenda VanDomelen, at
