According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), when pandemic flu happens in the United States, as many as 4 in 10 school-age children could become sick. Many teachers and staff members would also be ill or need to care for sick family members, and not be able to report to work. The effects on our schools could be staggering. In some cases, schools may be required to close for an extended period of time.
