Truman Middle School, Where Knowledge Is Good

Dear Director:

I want to alert you to a possible health problem affecting students at the Truman Middle School. I just had a discussion with the director of our student band. He told me that in his class on Wednesday, May 20th, fully one-third of his students were absent.

This situation reminds me of last year when we had a widespread outbreak of the flu. Can you help us determine if we should be concerned? If there is a problem, can you suggest measures we might take to prevent or contain the disease?

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,
