Flu Update: A Message from the Superintendent
Good afternoon RISD families, this is David Simmons, RISD Superintendent.

There are some new developments today with respect to the flu situation in RISD. One of the probable cases at Canyon Creek Elementary has been confirmed as swine flu. Now two students at Canyon Creek Elementary have the swine flu virus, and one student is still a probable case.

Since yesterday, three additional students at Northlake Elementary are suspected cases for swine flu, and there is a suspected case at Brentfield Elementary as well. None of these students have been hospitalized, and in fact, the first confirmed case from Canyon Creek Elementary has recovered and is doing very well.

Please remember, a suspected case does not mean that it is swine flu. Further tests need to be done by the county health department and CDC before confirmation of the virus is given.

At this point, we are evaluating the situation campus by campus. We will make any decisions to close a school or schools based on a thorough review of the facts and in consultation with the county health officials and national CDC guidelines.

Please see for updates and comprehensive flu information.

Thank you.
