I'm not too far from your neck of the woods, in fort wayne here
My son is in school, my daughter is still too young, will be attending K this fall.
Now, if we had just our daughter, I would likely (80%) send her to school. She's extremely healthy, extremely strong, and HIGHLY active, and when
she gets sick, she bounces right out of it in short terms.
The problem is.. our son. See, he has childhood disintigrative disorder, on the autism spectrum, moderate-to-severe. He catches quite a few colds,
ear infections (has one right now in fact), flues, etc... it's part of the disorder, they just have a weakened immune system in general.
Because of this, if it were to outbreak here, I would be keeping him home. Don't have to worry about exposure from other family members, as our
daughter spends most of her time with just us (very few children in our area), I am disabled and rarely leave the house, and my wife practices heavy
sanitation when she goes to work.
What I am getting at here, without fear mongering or anything like that (personally, I feel this h1n1 is nothing to fear any more than another flu..
just use sense), is that we already practice removing him from school if there is an outbreak of anything nasty here, due to his system already being
weak. If you would normally remove your child from school due to a nasty bug running through the school, then do so in this case as well.
In the end it is all up to you, and just remember that you are the one who has to guard... they can't do it themselves
Seriously though, best thing to do is DO NOT panic, and just be smart about things. Do what you would normally do, and just use enhanced protocols on
protection for a little bit. Nothing to fear, because that will just make you make mistakes.
