Do you guys at the Lowell Sun read what you publish? obviously NOT..

read this :LOWELL -- The city's health director says a second-grade teacher at the Bartlett Community Partnership School in Lowell died of bacterial meningitis on Wednesday, but that there is no threat to students or staff.

The Lowell School Committee held a moment of silence for second-grade teacher Melissa Boyd Wednesday night.

Lowell Health Director Frank Singleton said his department and the state Department of Public Health initially looked into the teacher's illness, but determined there was no risk the condition was passed to other students or staff.

With that determination, the illness was not a public health threat, so neither agency had further involvement with the teacher.

Singleton did not provide the teacher's name, and Lowell Superintendent of Schools Jean Franco, who also confirmed that a second-grade teacher died, said she was not aware of the cause of death.

No one could immediately confirm whether Boyd was the teacher who died of meningitis.

First you give the Teacher name, and then you then you say that you can comfirm????
