Possible H1N1 Outbreak Eyed At East Bay Schools
As of Monday, 68 Pleasanton Middle School Students were absent due to an outbreak of flu symptoms. School officials said there is concern, but have not been able to confirm that it is swine flu.

The problem is so prevalent among the 8th grade class that some parents have pulled students out of class due to fear of the illness.

In his video report, Robert Lyles visits the school to see how teachers and parents are responding to the outbreak.
