Letter to Parents and Teachers from the National FFA

As you know, more than 50,000 FFA members have spent a week in close contact during the national FFA convention. Thank you for your attention to all our pre-convention "cold and flu" guidelines, and for all you have done to keep your students healthy during the event. As FFA members have returned to their respective homes, we have been made aware of a handful of cases of flu-like symptoms in convention attendees. We have also been notified of at least one suspected diagnosis of H1N1 that has resulted in a death of a Kansas FFA member.

Please inform your advisors, members, their parents and siblings and encourage everyone to closely monitor their health. Should your members develop a fever or other flu-like symptoms, they should see a family physician as soon as possible.

Thank you.

Dwight Armstrong Chief Operating Officer
