The following is an excerpt from a letter issued by Superintendent Sara-Jane Querfeld…
“Dear School Community;
The North Haven School District has been informed by our school health personnel and the local health department (Quinnipiack Valley Health District) that a case of Novel H1N1 influenza (swine flu) has occurred at our Middle School, and a probable case has occurred at Green Acres Elementary School. The Town of North Haven has had 2 confirmed cases of novel H1N1 (swine flu), one of which was the Middle School student. Public health officials believe the confirmed cases represent only a portion of the cases in town and that novel H1N1 will continue to circulate in our town and school system. We will continue to work with public health officials to assess the situation. The Health Director is not recommending School closures at this time.”
