By Eyewitness News (WICHITA, Kan.)
A spokesperson with Wichita Public Schools says the district will no longer notify parents when there is a new confirmed case of a student infected with the H1N1 virus.
In the past, USD 259 notified parents when a case of H1N1 was confirmed by KDHE. District spokesperson Susan Arnesman says for every confirmed case of the flu strain, there are dozens that go un-confirmed.
The district says because H1N1 appears to be wide spread, and health and safety precautions are the same regardless of flu type, the district will no longer notify parents of individual cases.
