After the Princeton Regional Schools District sent out a letter about swine flu, a worried parent “panicked” and sent out an e-mail that sent parents all across this quaint little hamlet of Princeton scurrying to pull their children out of class.
From the Trenton Times:
The parent allegedly became worried about the potential for swine flu at Princeton High School and circulated an e-mail saying “swine flu has reached the high school.” School officials said the rumor was false.
Princeton’s OK! We’re all OK! It’s just a rumor!
Anyway, we like to keep things in perspective. The pandemic alert is only at Level 5 –we’ve still got one more to go before swine flu wipes us out.
