Ok…I feel a little ridiculous, but I kept the kids home from school today. They are outside picking flowers together instead right now. Our school had a vacation week last week and today would have been the first day back to school.
St. Francis Preparatory School In New York had its school vacation week the week after Easter and I worry that the pattern could repeat itself at our schools with many children and teachers returning from vacations. St. Francis Preparatory School is closed today and tomorrow.
Canada also has four confirmed cases of swine flu aquired by student travelers in Mexico and New Zealand said 10 students who took a school trip to Mexico probably had swine flu, and today it said three students in a second group just back from Mexico probably have it as well.
I may even keep them out for the whole week. This whole thing is so depressing and stressful!
Did you decide to keep your children home from school today?
