    Orange Unified takes lead on Swine Flu information

    Orange Unified School Superintendent Renae Dreier got out in front of the Swine Flu outbreak with a district-wide message to parents and staff on Monday April 27th and a special Swine Flu section added to the OUSD website with important Swine Flu information.

    The district-wide telephone call told staff and parents that the message was from the OUSD Superintendent’s office and included the following information:

    As parents, you should:
    • Keep your child home with flu symptoms (which include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue).
    • Keep your child home with a fever greater than 100 degrees.
    • Report illness to your doctor, especially if the child has recently visited Mexico.
    • Wash hands often.
    • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze


    The Superintendent’s message came on the same day that the World Health Organization increased its world-wide rating on the possibly of a world health crisis from a “three” to a “four” on a six point scale. The United States Center for Disease Control has reported the Swine Flu in 5 U.S. states including 11 confirmed cases in California. No deaths have been reported in the United States or other countries outside of Mexico where a reported 150 people may have dies from the outbreak in Mexico.

    Superintendent Drier has won high marks from the community for living by her “knowledge is power” mantra for the budget crisis. Now being out front on the potential Swine Flu epidemic is just another example of her “knowledge is power” philosophy.
