I agree that all precautions should be taken, however you can't stop your life because of a virus. True some kids are sick, but the previous post was correct by saying wal-mart is the same risk. With that said I doubt any of us would stop going to wal-mart or kroger during this time. The same people that want to shut school down would be the first to complain when we are still going in June. Lastly, if you get on the symptoms early, it is not as bad as you would think. I was only truely down for 24 hrs, and the next 24 hrs I felt much better.

Yes maybe 24 hours is okay.But the question is how many kids and adults have had it not knowing,and start the spread,then it becomes a major concern.

You know some people may call me nuts but when it comes to my kids health I do what I have to . I have a son with cystic fibrosis and this kind of sickness can be deadly for him. All they are doin is spreading it around and round. There are some parents that send the kids even if they are sick putting others at risk.
I understand I cant protect him from everything but if I can prevent it I will!!!!!!!!!!

You are doing the correct thing by pulling him out with his illness. Dont let anyone tell you different!!! It may not be a danger to most but your situation is different. You are correct on how many people send kids to school sickand use school for a babysitter and daycare. I see it everyday!!

This is not just effecting one or two schools in the County it's every one of them , and we don't know who each of the kids come in contact with nor the teachers. it going to just keep spreading. I contacted the 25 news about this , maybe they will get to the bottom .

I am a father of two.I understand wanting to protect your kids, but are you people going to all stay home from work too? Because if your not, they will just be exposed to it by you, instead of at school. Don't you have to go get food? Unless your entire family are going to be hermits until spring,you are all pissing in the wind. Yes, swine flu is bad, but influenza is always bad. And what are y'all talking about the schools are still open because of money? Lunch Money? Because the schools are operating on a budget that is independent from whether your kids go to school for the next month or not. I'm not a teacher, but i don't think they all get together each week in the principals office, and split up money based on attendance, like a bunch of waitresses splitting tips. And from some of the spelling, some of you appear to need all the school contact you can get.

Well guess your not "smarter than most" , if you were then you would know that the schools lose money on each child for each day they are not in school. And as far as keepin them at home it depends on if your child is healthy or not . And any good parent would be concerned and do what they have to for their child. Some like me can stay home and tend to the kids and I understand many can't . I know for a fact there are many kids out sick at the school my kids attended , they had 68 out last Tue. So any way it was best for my kids in this case.

If you will read the article, they are not referring to any of our public schools; they are referring to Job Corp as a school. Although I understand your concern, I think Wal-Mart at a bigger risk right now because they take those kids there one night a week.
That is incorrect, I know for a fact that the schools are only reporting a few cases to the state so they won't have to shut the schools down. I also know for a fact that there are over 100 cases in our school system right now. As for me I will bring a law suit against the school system and Dale Todd if my child catches the h1n1 virus. I hope all other parent do the same then maybe we can get ride of the parisite once and for all.

your right they don't go to the principles office and discuss this money matter, however the school gets money everyday based on the number of students present each day. Not think about that if we keep kids out of school they lose money.
