And the point of that is?

My first years got set home at lunch time because of swine flu. The board of education has a system that once over a certain number of pupils have it, then the grade goes home.

Which doesn't make a lot of sense because one or two kids in the 2nd and 3rd grades have it too, but because they haven't met the numbers those grades stay at school. Which means they'll just be passing it to each other in class and club, thereby completely negating the idea that sending the first years home with help stop infection from spreading.

The three days they have off will have to be made up too. They'll have three days less in their Winter holiday. I don't think they realise that though, the vast majority of kids (that aren't sick) now officially think Swine Flu is the best thing ever.

Ah Japan, it's not so much with the logic.

In my area there are kids at one or two elementary schools and one or two middle schools that have it. The thing is, all these kids go to afterschool academies together, it's going to spread like wildfire.
