Students return after swine flu cases at Washington Middle School
Students return back to school today after the city's health department re-evaluates its initial two-week school closure.
But how do parents feel sending their kids back to the school where two kids tested positive for the swine flu?
Our Concetta Callahan joins us with the story.
"After having a week off of school, students reported back to class a week ahead of schedule despite 2 swine flu cases confirmed at a UISD middle school."
“The city of Laredo health department has received confirmation from the Texas department of state health services on 2 positive influenza a H1N1 suspected cases. Both students attend Washington middle school. I’m told they are 13 and 14 years of age and have both fully recovered. Surprisingly, this news doesn't concern too many parents."
Melissa Foshee, Daughter attends school:
"It concerns me a little bit but I think at this time it’s more hyped up than it really is."
"City officials say since both students were out during their infectious period there is no concern on additional spread at this time. School officials want to remind parents to not send their child to school if they are feeling sick and to remind your child to wash their hands frequently
