A SAD DAY AT GETTYS MIDDLE SCHOOL.>>MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS OH MY, HOW ARE MY KIDS GOING TO HANDLE THIS THINKING THAT MAYBE IT WAS ONE OF THEIR FRIENDS OR ONE OF THEIR CLASSMATES.. COREY: THE DEATH OF SIXTH GRADE BOY CAUSED BY BACTERIAL MENIGHITIS CAME AS A SHOCK EMOTIONS LAYERED WITH WORRY AND SADNESS. PARENTS OF OTHER STUDENTS JUST FINDING OUT.>>YOU KNOW, IT’S HEARTBREAKING.. THE DISTRICT EMAILED PARENTS. AND SENT A LETTER HOME WITH STUDNETS EXPLAINING WHAT HAPPENED. THE BOY DIED AFTER BEING HOSPITALIZED. THE CUSTODIAL CREW AT THE SCHOOL NOW DOING MORE THAN JUST THE DAILY DUSTING WORKING OVERTIME TO DISINFECT AREAS OF THE SCHOOL.>>ME, DO YOU FEEL CONFIDENT SENDING YOUR KIDS BACK TOMORROW? PHELPS, ABSOLUTELY..
