I wanted to ask if anyone knows how contagious this MRSA is? I do not have any children in the New Lexington shcool district. But I don't think that there is enough information about this. Just wanted to know if it travels on the wind, by touch, or how? And who do we believe? The CDC the school system????? I am really scared for the children of the world.....We need to know about thing like this, our children are the next generation. We need to keep them healthy!

i miss tyler very much. we all loved him and i still wait for him in the halls, but he never comes. he never got to experience high school, or christmas. everyday i think i see him walking to class, just to tell us its not real, but he never shows up. and its hard to believe hes really gone. & i understand parents are concerned, but the whole school lost an amazing friend. ksp2260 you seem to have no sorrow for what happened to us, but only concern for yourself. it was internal and is still a mystery as to how he got it. its coming up just over a year since he died, and i still cant believe hes really gone, that this kid lost his life at FOURTEEN. and he was teased, which makes it worse.i wish he was still here, because its hard to go to the school hes supposed to be at everyday and realize hes never ever coming back. Always in our hearts tyler! I MISS YOU SO MUCH!

I was in marching band with him, and when he did...well, I've never seen so much sadness in one area. He was such a fun boy, and every year we remember him on the day he passed.
