Rumors of Brophy having to close due to the swine flu were shot down by Principal Mr. Bob Ryan who says that while we might not have seen the worst of the flu “we weathered it pretty well.”
But this is not to say the school is taking the H1N1 swine flu lightly. Mr. Ryan said that he has even found himself washing his hands and using the school provided hand sanitizer more frequently.
Mr. Ryan also said that because Brophy’s population spans much of the valley, the idea of closing and letting the flu “run its course” in the community is not as feasible as smaller schools with much smaller communities might be doing at this point in time.
