The Snohomish Health District contacted the Stanwood Camano School District (SCSD) on March 9, 2017, to inform us that Twin City Elementary had one confirmed case of a student having the mumps. (See letter to Superintendent Jean Shumate: Mumps letter to Shumate ). SCSD and the Health District are working closely together to implement response plans that have been used in the statewide mumps outbreak, including communications to the families and staff. A copy of the Snohomish Health Department's letter to Twin City Elementary Parents and Students is available here: Mumps letter to TCE .
