JUNCTION CITY — The current health of Junction City Elementary students has provoked a new red, yellow and green light system to be put into place to relay the severity of the flu virus and how it has spread.
Currently, the school is listed as red.
Although, it wasn't just the flu that caused the closing of Junction City Elementary School for the week, said Pam Tamme, psychologist for Boyle County schools.
Children also were infected with chicken pox and other illnesses, according to Tamme's report given Thursday at the Board of Education's meeting.
She also presented the rough draft of a plan to help schools prepare to act in the event of further outbreaks of flu and other illnesses. The plan is based on green, yellow and red lights — green representing when all schools are considered "healthy."
