Public health officials throughout the country have alerted the public to the possibility of a pandemic
influenza during the course of the 2006-2007 school year. CAPSO urges every private school to take measures designed to facilitate prevention of, preparedness for, and responsiveness to a possible pandemic.

The first step in achieving these goals lies in obtaining authoritative information about both seasonal and pandemic influenza. Establishing a relationship with local public health agencies is strongly encouraged. Your County Office of Health Services can provide you with up-to-date information and guidance for both family and school preparedness.
If possible, planning activities should be conducted without causing undue anxiety or alarm. The advent of a pandemic is by no means a certainty, and severe outbreaks of the more typical seasonal (nonpandemic) "flu" are capable of producing morbidity and mortality rates similar to, or even exceeding a pandemic influenza.
