Measles advisory, June, 2019
Measles, which is currently breaking out worldwide, can be quite dangerous and is highly contagious. Only if 90-95% of a population is immune (by vaccination or by having had the disease) can the chain of transmission be broken. Since Shutesbury Elementary School does not have this level of immunity among the pupils, Shutesbury is at risk of seeing measles break out here.
