View Full Version : My school made the evening news because of a 'Flu Epidemic'

150 of around 1000 students stayed home Monday, Tuesday it was 200.

I'm a victim myself, stayed home Monday and Tuesday. I started getting sick Saturday but didn't flare out until Sunday night.

Lots of fun. :P

Anyway, you're lucky TiE. I never had something like that happen to my school.

Just be glad your school made news because of the flu and not a shooting or a bomb going off. My old high school used to get about 10+ bomb threats a year. And most of the time there was either a little bucket of black powder or a can of gasoline stored in some ones locker. I don't miss those days of school at all. And I didn't help any with drive-by paintballing when there were dances/games going on.

But anywho! Glad you had fun on your day off. I know I had fun on my month off of work!

Every school in any close proximity of my school was closed on Monday and Tuesday because it was "too cold." Except my school, we only got Tuesday off. :x

Bah, the most trouble we get is from other schools spraying graffiti on the walls. Also, one of the rooms I had last year appeared to have half a dozen bullet holes in the windows- no one could really explain why.

Too cold? Heh. That would never happen at my school.

Since I have been that my current, that worst thing that has happened is a lockdown. Due to the fact, that there were "armed" robbers. And apparently only one of the "robbers" had a weapon. We were locked in our classroom for about an extra hour on an early dismissal day. Otherwise, I've been quite (un)lucky with a huge school problem.

Though, I do have a cough that has been constantly bugging me. But, not too bad to effect any people.

But, eh, get well soon.

We got Monday of due to it being -20 outside and a -40 Wind chill, we might get out again if the wind just picks up again.

I got Tuesday off because I was sick with this hard to cure disease called "Senioritis" :xp:

I also get tomorrow and friday off for staff development days :D

Hah, school got canceled for Thursday and Friday. I've been out of school since Saturday, this is awesome. :D

Oh, by the way, I felt okay this morning, but I played sick to skip school... though I did have a really stuffed nose.

I know, Mercer Island must have caught it from you guys because we had tons of kids out this week and they think its cause kids from our school were hangin out with Blanchet kids.

The only thing my school was ever in the news for was that HappyCrack thing last year. Oh yeah, and Kenny getting suckerpunched at the basketball game.

But yeah, our school has had a lot of kids missing. Not enough to cancel though, you're lucky.
