School can be a dangerous spreading ground for the Swine Flu.

That’s why the District is gearing up to prevent an outbreak.

District 51 wants to provide the safest learning environment possible, that’s why they sent a letter to parents letting them know what they can do to help.

Getting kids vaccinated and teaching them to wash their hands are a few small steps parents can take.

Mesa County Health Department and the School District would like to remind parents to keep children home if they are sick.
