Catholic schools prepare for H1N1

Click here for Swine Flu resourcesThere has been an unusual twist to the start of the new school year in Catholic schools through the Diocese of Buffalo. Principals, faculty and staff have gone through the normal course of preparations, including updating technology, reviewing lesson plans and sprucing up school classrooms. One additional task has been to make sure the schools and parents are prepared to deal with cases of H1N1 swine flu.

A small number of cases were reported in Catholic elementary and high schools last spring, but no Catholic schools were closed because of the virus.  In a nationwide survey which was reported last month, the American Red Cross found that 39 percent of parents said they had received no information about the H1N1 virus from their children's school.

Catholic schools are working to make sure that is not the case in the eight counties of Western New York.
