schools out due to sickness

Monday afternoon our schools crisis team met to discuss wither or not to close the school for due to the sickness that is flying throughout the school. the decision was yes for 3 days, so students do now have school till Monday which mean kindergarten report cards, already one of my least favorite times of the year have been cut down to 2 days for testing one night for filling in the millions of little squares and then the next two nights are parent teacher conference! gotta love it

let's just be honest

for weeks now this whole swine flu talk has been flying around town, a nephew had it a few weeks ago then it spread to his whole family, people are stressed, so worried, upset... then friends kids are being diagnosed. they are stressed, worried...

i tried (not very well i'm sure) to be sensitive, to reassure them it's just the flu no matter what it's called-lots of fluids and rest. please don't send them to school with a fever.

i've been sanitizing, washing, and sanitizing some more in my classroom. regardless i've been missing a handful of students all week. parents are shouting to close down school and i'm saying it wouldn't do any good. The flu is the flu it has to run it's course.

all that being said....

friday morning both of my children woke up with a funky, croup-like cough, No fever, i've been taking their temperatures 3 times a day... just to be sure. i've set up alternate plans for the week just in case

honestly it scares me... i believe everything that i've been telling family, friends, and parents but now that this silly germ is hanging outside my door i'm trying my best to not FREAK out
