GLENDALE — Amid forecasts of a wet winter and federal health advisories warning of a worse rash of the H1N1 influenza virus, the Glendale Unified School District has already purchased $12,000 worth of hand sanitizer in an effort to stop the spread of illness, administrators said. More than 43,000 confirmed and probable cases of H1N1 virus have been reported in the U.S., including 593 deaths, and tens of thousands of hospitalizations, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

From bottles of hand sanitizer to large concrete barriers and high-tech satellite soil erosion maps, paying taxes has its benefits. These are just a few of the ways in which local governments are preparing to help guard constituents against what is shaping up to be a relatively hazardous winter. Federal and state health officials predict the H1N1 influenza virus will become widespread this year, with young children and seniors most at risk to its deadly effects. A wet El Niño weather pattern forecasted for this rain season is expected to only compound the problem — even those who manage to steer clear of the swine flu stand a greater chance of catching its more garden-variety cousins.

GLENDALE — Students at three Glendale Unified School District schools have been stricken with swine flu, but administrators said the virus has not reached levels forecasted by state health officials. Seven cases have been reported at Rosemont Middle School, two at Crescenta Valley High and one at Monte Vista Elementary, Deputy. Supt. Richard Sheehan said. “It’s definitely in our community, which is no surprise,” he said. “We’re asking people to be vigilant about taking care of their kids, making sure they are well rested, eating well, washing their hands for 20 seconds and covering their mouth when they cough or sneeze.

GLENDALE — Thirty-two public and private schools in Glendale will be among the 270 beneficiaries of an Americana at Brand donation program, company officials said. For much of December, customers at the Americana and sister development the Grove could opt to donate 5% of their receipts to a school of their choosing. Almost all schools in Ventura and Los Angeles counties were eligible. “Customers supported their schools,” said Jennifer Gordon, a senior vice president with Caruso Affiliated, which owns the two outdoor malls.

GLENDALE — Nine-year-old Brandon Mata may not get a chance to show off his Dracula costume, not because his neighborhood’s unsafe, but because his mom’s wary of swine flu. “Maybe, this year it is not going to be very fun,” said his mom, Laura Estrada. “Maybe we don’t go out this year and just stay home. I will buy him candy instead.” For many parents, fears of stomachaches or crime this Halloween have been trumped by the potentially deadly H1N1 virus, which continues to spread throughout Los Angeles County.

GLENDALE — Sizable amounts of hand sanitizer are still in stock and will remain available in most Glendale Unified School District classrooms through the winter, school officials said. Students return to class today, and school officials said they are prepared for any kind of germ-related threat. “We’ll continue to make sure we’re well stocked,” Supt. Michael Escalante said. Los Angeles County public health officials continue to provide vaccines for the H1N1 flu at 11 clinics.

GLENDALE — About 52,000 surgeon masks were delivered to the Glendale Unified School District this week as educators cope with the ongoing flu season. The shipment matches a roughly two-mask-per-student ratio, and district officials are developing a plan to maximize the masks, gloves and anti-flu materials distributed by state agencies. “Once we see what we’ve got, we’ll see what works best,” said Scott Price, Glendale Unified’s administrator of business services.
