We got two confirmed cases of the flu, one is A. Then I have a little girl with pink eye, she ran from my office early today and I come to find out she wasn't here today? I think I'm going crazy because another girl came in with pink eye and same class, and apparently she's the only one with pink eye?

help?

I am seeing so many students today with cold symptoms. They have been sick all weekend, and are convinced they are dying.  If they don't have cold symptoms, they hurt themselves at home this weekend, and their parents told them to come and see me.  They are all disappointed that they are not being sent home!

It's been declared a measles outbreak from the CDC to us in Houston, So I need to watch for issues too. So yeah... so not my week or month to be honest.

Up near Dallas, we have crazy Flu A outbreaks right now. Lots of schools are teetering the line of closing, and some have.
