Principals will receive updated information and printed general instructions during their Friday, August 28 professional development meeting. The Communications Department is developing and will distribute an H1N1 information letter for parents. District and County Health Department Information Technology personnel will collaborate on the sharing of attendance data to monitor the impact of H1N1 infections.
