My neighbor's daughter had a band concert last night and she said that they announced it there. So being the mom I am I looked online and yes indeed the schools were closing. What shocked me was the reason WHY. According to a statement from the district there is "one probable case"
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!! PROBABLE - not confirmed.
I am a momma of three and yes I am on alert for the signs of this bug. i am washing their hands more and using a little more cleaning product in the bathroom and kitchen. I am NOT taking them to school or pre-school sick. I am even watching who they are around. We will probably not go to KIDS STUFF (all-play) at church on Wednesday. We will just go to choir and guppy class an I will go to MOPS.
Needless to say I was glad to hear that our pre-school was only going to close (for 72 hrs) if there was a direct CONFIRMED case linked to the school. (Whew) This means that my hubby and I will not have to take 2 weeks off. (We only have 4 days between the 2 of us left) I we had to take off we would lose 6 days of pay and that my friends would hurt this household! We do have an emergency fund - however it would be nice to use that on something NEEDED instead of demanded from this school district.
So I am closing this soapbox now with a side note that the CDC is NOT recommending closing schools. WHAT? REALLY? SHOCKER!
OK I am done now.
OH and D- I hope you have fun in Florida - you deserve it. I am praying for you to have a safe trip. Isn't it fun to be spontaneous?? Enjoy your 2 weeks off! Now you can blog more.
