BRADENTON (2009-05-02) -

Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands was the advice this group of experts gave out. But parent Linda Neely wonders how elementary school students be expected to wash their hands without the proper supplies.

Neely says the school has responded to vandalism by taking soap, paper towels and toilet paper out of the bathrooms. Manatee County School Risk Manager Forrest Branscomb says they do have issues with bathroom vandals, but the problem is isolated. His says we all need to take responsibility for not spreading swine flu, should it come here.
