Abigayle did not go to school today because she has the respiratory junk and her fever was 101.6 last night. Fortunately, it is normal now. I think that she is on the mend.
In her classroom, there are 23 kids. As of 8:30 this morning, only EIGHT kids were at school. By 11:30, 2 more kids went home sick. Since then, I heard that another child went home!!!
From 8:30 to noon today, 72 more kids went home because they were sick. I have no idea how many kids didn't go to school at all today. Those 72 kids were just grade school students!!! I have no idea how many high school kids were home sick. At least 1/3rd of the grade school kids are sick. A couple of weeks ago, Ness City cancelled school when 1/3rd of the kids were sick. I hope that they do that here also! Otherwise, the illnesses just keep spreading throughout the school and then throughout the county, etc.
