DCPS Tries to Calm Swine Fears

D.C. school officials sent a taped phone message to District families this evening assuring them that no swine flu cases have been identified in DCPS or the city. Here is the text of the message:

"I am calling from the District of Columbia Public Schools with a message about the recent news reports of swine flu in the United States. Please be assured that NO cases of swine flu have been reported in the District of Columbia or DCPS. However, as a precaution we are working with the Department of Health to ensure that your school nurse and you have information about swine flu. We will also be sending a letter home with children within the next few days with information about swine flu. More information is also on our website and available at the Department of Health. Thank you for listening to this message, and enjoy your evening."
