Macedo said that school officials have no further details "but I wanted to let you know what happened as soon as we could". "Nico was a great kid with a great smile and he will be missed greatly". He loved sports, especially gathering up his friends to play football at recess, and was a devoted hockey player and teammate. "We're really going to miss him and remember him very fondly". He added Nico, who each day right before dismissal, would be the voice for the school's afternoon announcements.

"What we do not know, however, is if the flu caused Nico's passing", he wrote in a letter to the school community. He was taken to a hospital and diagnosed with the flu.

The flu is now widespread in every state except Hawaii, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Additionally, anyone experiencing signs and symptoms of the Flu should seek medical advice from a physician, and please do not send your child to school if he/she is not feeling well. These efforts will continue throughout the Influenza season. The CDC plans to meet about the flu outbreak across the country on Tuesday.
