school warns parents over suspected Swine Flu case
of pupils at a Highbridge school have this week been warned to
keep a close eye on their children after a youngster showed signs
of suspected Swine Flu.
Primary School's headteacher Wendy Nelder wrote to all parents
on Friday (January 21st), telling them of the "suspected
case" of Swine Flu.
In the letter, she states: "We thought we should inform
you that we have a suspected case of Swine Flu in school."
"The vast majority of Swine Flu cases in the UK have been
mild and self-limiting. Please keep an eye on your child."
