My question is this...Does this mean that the kids will have to continue school into June to meet the mandated 180 days of classes?

and what about AP testing? and graduation? I always felt bad that my kids never got to experience snow days. Swine Flu days just aren't the same.

I don't think only one school out means that they have to make it up. If the whole district was out, like a snow day, the district would be required to make it up. What a bussing nightmare that would be if only the high school had to go a week later! Not to mention family vacations, etc.

THIS IS SO STUPID!!!! Why are they only shuting down the high school in carlsbad?! They should shut down ALL schools in carlsbad because people from the high school could pass the swine flu to younger siblings and they could taake it to there school causing the swine flu to spread more!!!! This is soooooooooo STUPID!!!!!!!!!!

My bet is all schools in the district will be closed by morning or at least sometime this week.

I couldn't agree more. I am sure this student at the high school had smaller siblings at the elementary or middle schools. Not only that, I am sure this student already exposed the other students and they already exposed their families. I have a small child at ECEC that has underlying medical problems and something like this scares me like crazy and her older sister attends this high school. So how do I know that my children haven't been exposed?
Not only that, there is a 7 yr old with a "probable" case. I am sure this child is in the elementary schools somewhere in town.

Either close all the schools or none at all.

Close all of the schools, and they are not going to like it...but shut down the businesses, churches, anyplace that the public can gather. This is the only real way to stop the spread of the swine flu....however, its more than likely too late anyway. The best thing people can do is stay at home, away from any possible type of contact with someone who may be infected.

The flu may be slowing down in Mexico because they went into a total shutdown mode for a week. If our local-state-national officals were smart and pro active, they would have done this here in the US a week ago.

Typical reactive thinking....which is stupid, they are not going to do anything unless it bites them in the butt first.

As far as I can tell the HS is the only school that is shutting down.

I wouldn't put my childern on a bus.....and am considerning not sending them to shcool.
