Highland Park ISD Wants Parents to Know They Are Safe From Clay Jenkins and His Family
Clay Jenkins does not have Ebola.
Centers for Disease Control
This week, Highland Park school district's "Nurses's Corner" is an attempt to assuage parents' fears about the Ebola risk at HPISD schools. There is no risk, the letter says, despite Armstrong Elementary parent Clay Jenkins being in close contact with members of Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan's family.
From the letter:
"Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, who is an Armstrong Elementary parent, has been working with health officials on the day-to-day management of the situation. Jenkins worked directly with the family members with whom the Ebola patient stayed to ensure that they were safely relocated to another residence where they will continue to be monitored. According to reports, none of the family members have developed symptoms. Jenkins asked us to pass along the assurances of public health officials that he and his family are not at risk for exposure to Ebola as a result of his work on the case."
We'd imagine Judge Jenkins' daughter probably thinks her dad is the worst right about now.
