It turns out health officials now realize the Swine Flu wasn't as bad as they thought, so they no longer recommend schools to close.
So we got a recorded message call Tuesday evening from our school district superintendent with the news that school would start again sooner than they had told us in our last official call.
Everyone would be back in school on Thursday morning, May 7th.
That should mean our parks and our local library and any church or other business that had closed because of the health officials recommendation should also re-open.
As we drove past a couple of parks on the way home Wednesday, Joshua and I looked to see if the park closed signs were gone yet... but they were still there.
Looks like we have officially survived Swine '09. We may have to buy t-shirts from the kids at Steele High School who are selling shirts with the pig in the picture at the top of this post as a fundraiser for their Project Graduation party. If you would like to buy one of the shirts (or more), go to http://www.shsprojectgrad.org/
