Late last week Richmond school officials took extra precautions to warn parents about the H1N1 (Swine flu) virus.
Each student was sent home with a two-page information packet from the Center for Disease Control.
The packet contained information describing what the virus is and what symptoms to look for and what to do if symptoms exist.
The packet also outlined some preventive measures to keep germs at bay.
The decision was made to send the packets home after Superintendent Jim Robins talked with his administrative staff.
There are now more than 200 confirmed cases of the virus in the United States including two in Missouri.
