Swine Flu

My girls are (unexpectedly) home from school today. At pick-up Wednesday Lisa was greeted with chants of "no school no school". She stopped and asked some teachers what was going on and was told that there was one confirmed and two probable cases of swine flu among the student body. The school was therefore ordered (?) shut down today, and possibly Friday. I was at work at the time but ran into two other school parents, by which time the story had grown to include four confirmed and two probable cases.

The thing is, I can't find a single column inch about this on the Journal's website, or on the TV. Has anyone else in town heard about this? If so, please let me know.

Check the Wisconsin State Department of Health, or call your County Dept. of Health. They should have the info for you. I've been out of the loop when it comes to news because of moving the in-laws, but I heard from a reader in Ohio that there have been schools shut down there, too. I hope not too many kids get sick in your neck of the woods.

Keeping fingers crossed that all is well with the bairns I am sure that it will be. There have been quiate a few cases over here but none have proved to be any worse that the usual winter flu...
Take Care,
Love Sybil x
