Why is Region 13 not taking a cautious approach to a possibly very serious health issue? I would think it better to close schools like the various other districts rather than take a chance. As a parent, I am very concerned about the health and safety of my family. I'd like to know how long it takes to confirm the diagnosis/testing. Even though the child hasn't been in school, has s/he had interaction with other children in the community. Better safe than sorry.

Clean water has everybody coming here too, should we stop drinking clean water? And WE pay for that too. I'm sick and tired of paying for clean water so that people can come from another country and drink it. I agree with you 100%, why should we as Americans have a great country?
