Dr. Franey, Medical Officer of Health, called this afternoon and gave me written authority to reopen the school next Monday, May 14 but not to admit children who have had scarlet fever or who are living in infected houses. The schoolrooms are to be disinfected, the walls brushed, the floor and furniture to be cleaned with carbolic in the water etc. I called on Inns and gave him orders to colour and paint the schoolroom and limewash the closets. I also called on Mrs. Langley. Inns found there would not be time to colour and paint but only to well clean.
