As new information comes in on H1N1, we will continue to pass it along to you. Policy guidance is now available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding the H1N1 virus, intended for K-12 schools, teachers, administrators, and parents. You will find it here: http://www.flu.gov/plan/school/schoolguidance.html. (Because the guidance may change as the situation changes, we’re sharing the URL where the guidance will always live on flu.gov, rather than a static attachment.)
Additionally, CDC has also created a health-focused toolkit for teachers and parents, located here: http://www.flu.gov/plan/school/toolkit.html.
Finally, here is a link the press release summarizing a joint announcement on Aug. 7 from Secretaries Duncan (ED), Sebelius (HHS), and Napolitano (DHS): http://www.ed.gov/news/pressreleases/2009/08/08072009.html.
