  2. Verbal updates will be announced using School Messenger® as warranted via the Risk Management Department.
  3. School protocol for reporting confirmed cases of Type A influenza  remains as follows:

      1. Parent brings note of confirmation from doctor or healthcare provider.
      2. School faxes confirmation to Risk Management Department.
      3. Posting on www.cpsb.org website done each work day @ 1:30 p.m. The numbers posted are only for that day. To see the history of confirmations at each school, click on the blue number to the right of the school.
