is at my school!
We had a quick meeting after school that a 6th grader has a confirmed case. He's out for 7 days. His whole family is on tamiflu and the 5th grade brother was sent home today with similar symptoms. Mom is keeping him home for 7 days as a precaution.
So, now we have to wipe everything down at the end of the day and be more cautious of things. The maintenance guys are taking care of cleaning/sanitizing the common areas, but we're responsible for our classrooms - desks, chairs, door nobs, other often touched areas.
I'm going to tell my kids that if they sneeze and don't have a tissue, they get some hand sanitizer and if they sneeze on their desk, they instantly get their own Clorox wipe - hopefully that will cut down on some of the unnecessary germ spreading.
THis has not really made me re-think my decision to NOT give R any of the flu shots this year.
