A student at Whitin middle school returned from vacation from Mexico on Monday.My daughter sits one desk away.Upon learning this I kept her out of school Tue and Wed.I called the school to see if the child was checked out,they said no.So then I called the Board of Health.They said there is nothing they can do.Then she said how would I like it if I just got back from vaca and people wanted to test my kid.I said that if my kid was in Mexico,I would have my kid tested anyway,and she laughed and said call my doctor.This is unacceptable.What do I do,wait until my child is deathly ill,i was trying avoid exposure, and was ridiculed in the process.I am going to take legal action if this thing turns south.Parents should know their kids are in school with someone who just returned from Mexico,and the school and town knows it and did and said nothing.Even if the child isnt positive for swine flu,there was no effoort to avoid any possible contamination.,this as close as it gets to actually being infected
