  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.
      4. All reports of confirmed cases are released only through the Superintendent's Office, Risk Management or Public Information Departments, not the schools.
