Hello Rondo,

I think you may have meant your question for a particular school's principal or district leadership. If you don't have your child's school contact info handy, and if it's located in the United States, you can research its phone number in SchoolFinder:

Schools are definitely grappling with the question you raise: to stay open or close when one or more children come down with the H1N1 (swine) flu. It's a tough decision, and Education.com offers resources in its H1N1 flu special edition to help administrators and teachers in this process...
