To the Editor:

The Eagle's article on school outbreaks ("Outbreaks Reported at Humbolt, Long Creek and Prairie City schools," Sept. 29) states that at Humbolt eight students and one staff member were infected, according to the OHA outbreak report. In fact, those numbers are six and three, respectively. 

Last year the districts made prompt public reports of cases. This seems to be no longer happening. The fact that the last Humbolt case was discovered on Sept. 6 and we are only hearing about it now is disquieting. Parents are right to express dismay.
