June 22, 2009 — Classes Suspended Because of H1N1 at St. Scholastica Up to June 30, Also, at Central Elem. School 2 in Sta. Rosa, Laguna Up to June 28

22 June 2009

These are the latest in the rash of class suspensions triggered by H1N1.  

Classes have been suspended starting today, Monday, up to June 30 at St. Scholastica's College in Manila. The announcement was made by Ms. Vivian Manila, head of the college's security and safety department, who said that one of their students has tested positive for H1N1 infection.    

Classes have also been suspended for ten (10) days starting last Friday, June 19, at the Central Elementary School 2 in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.  The suspension was made after six (6) students in said school showed symptoms of H1N1.  

This only goes to show that our education authorities' recommended strategy of "selective quarantine" in case of H1N1 infection is not finding much support on the ground. A DepEd and a CHED that do not inspire much confidence, I'd say, should go back to their drawing boards and put up something more reasonable.
