Parents worried about schools’ attitude towards ‘Madras Eye’

Chennai, Oct 28: Parents are concerned that schools are not taking sufficient precautions to protect their children from the epidemics breaking out in the city, mainly conjuctivitis, caused by the recent change of weather.

“The school has not issued any official circular. I am not sure what is happening. I feel scared especially when I open the newspaper everyday and see new cases of some disease in the newspaper,” said one of the parents at Sankara Senior Secondary School in Adyar as she was picking up her seven-year-old daughter back home.
