The Time of The Swine....

I'm not sure about you guys but I have 3 young children and when it gets this close I get a little worried. How far will it have to go before they decide that the school systems are really nothing more than a huge incubator just like a hospital. My main concern is that after the 2 week period for the symptoms to actually start that it might be to late. I know you can't tell this early how to treat the problem but lets face it IT'S NOT GOING AWAY ON ITS OWN!!
