Local Class Attendance Not Affected By H1N1

Despite the attention the H1N1 is receiving, it is not affecting attendance for children in area classrooms.

School districts we spoke with today said they have not seen a noticeable drop in school attendance. Amarillo ISD tells us they have not been advised of any specific threat of the virus, so they will continue classes as planned.

Across the state however, more than 200 schools voluntarily closed their doors to avoid possible spreading of the virus.
