Didn't Want To See This

Just popped in my email box this afternoon:

A Rotolo Middle School student has a probable case of Swine Influenza.  Based on the recommendation of the Kane County Health Department, ROTOLO MIDDLE SCHOOL WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL MONDAY, MAY 4, 2009.  As a preventative measure to stop the transmission of infection, students and faculty are not to report to school until Monday, May 4, 2009.

All student activities, practices and meetings planned for Rotolo Middle School are canceled until Monday, May 4, 2009.  This includes all away, extracurricular activities as well as any building usage by community members during this time period.

Students and adults who demonstrate Influenza symptoms should seek medical treatment as soon as possible.  Symptoms include:

·         Fever, chills

·         Sore throat, cough

·         Achiness

·         Nausea, vomiting

The Center for Disease Control also recommends that all parties are encouraged to avoid group activities, until further communication is provided.


Yes, the family had traveled to Mexico recently. Hopefully the student will make a full recovery and no one else gets it. Benjy says that we should close our school down as well, you know, as a safety precaution.

Nice try, kiddo!
