I have been enjoying three days off this week due to concerns over the H1N1 flu virus. All of the public schools have closed this week. So have we. In fact, not many students came in this week. I will go back to work tomorrow. We shall see which students bother to come.
I have been watching this whole thing with some degree of apprehension. While of course one can’t be too careful, especially with children, this is no time to give into mass hysteria. And given the protests of last year, there is always a segment of society which is highly suceptible to it. (They also tend to be the loudest.)
