With the recent cases of swine flu many people worry that public places like schools could be hit hard with such a disease.

At Stocks Elementary School in Edgecombe County, school officials say health basics such as making sure children wash their hands and put their hand over their nose when the sneeze is a top priority, but after incidents of swine flu they say it becomes even more important.

Diane Lefiles with the schools says she feels teachers and nurses are well trained and prepared to deal with such a pandemic.

Many school officials in Eastern Carolina counties say they now have a daily conference call to get updates on the possible cases of swine flu and that they are ready if something was to occur.

    It's easy to say you're prepared, but if it comes that's a different story.

    you have to be kidding me! I'm a teacher, and I am NOT well prepared to deal with any pandemic!
