More Pandemic Swine Flu in schools as they open for fall
Mississippi – 150 cases reported in 19 districts as of August 11
Numerous absences because of flu-like illness prompted the Boyle County school district to cancel classes for the rest of this week at Junction City Elementary School, Superintendent Mike LaFavers said.
Health authorities are assuming that the cases are H1N1 swine flu.
Junction City Elementary has 353 students.
Sick children are being sent home left and right from one Mobile County Middle School. All of this coming on the heels of a confirmed case of Swine Flu. The school system is encouraging everyone, to safeguard yourself by washing your hands. Parents are also asked to keep sick students home.
Several students at Camden County Middle School were sent home today, because of flu-like symptoms.
School nurses say students were experiencing fevers (100 degrees or higher), lethargy, lack of appetite and coughing. Other symptoms of influenza including the swine virus can also include runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
It did not take long for one Heartland school district to come face to face with H1N1 also known as the Swine Flu. Just days into a new school year, the Marshall County School District has two confirmed cases of the flu.
The school district received word from the Marshall County Health department Friday afternoon. While the Marshall County Superintendent says he expected to see the illness at some point this school year. He says they did not expect to see students getting sick already.
