Education Secretary Arne Duncan said that some schools “will have to close,” and that administrators should be making plans to continue schooling at home, via telephones and the Internet.
When I go back to school next week, I'll be sure to ask my new principal what our plan is for conducting schooling "via telephones and the Internet".
The main point of the article, though, was that most schools will not need to close. My 2nd favorite part of the article was how to deal with open schools in a swine flu environment:
The guidelines also say that if the flu becomes more severe, additional measures may be needed, like...increasing the distance between people at school by moving the desks farther apart.
Yes, all that extra room I have in my classroom after squeezing in 38 desks, that vast expanse I use for herds of buffalo or whatever, I'll expand my huddled desks into that open space--because there's so much of it in my classroom.
As Instapundit would say, "We're in the best of hands."
