ARDMORE, OK -- The Carter County Health Department is confirming the death of a child due to H1N1 complications.
However there is still no confirmation whether that child was an Ardmore student, but Ardmore Schools did send out a press release today regarding the district's procedures to monitor and inhibit the spread of illness.
The release states Ardmore Schools are working with the carter County Health Department to provide FluMist to students. A vaccine will be available on Friday for middle school students with parental permission.
A spokesperson from Ardmore City Schools say Charles Evans Elementary School will have additional counselors available to discuss any student concerns.
Dr. Fred Wright, assistant superintendent for Ardmore Schools, says the additional counselors have nothing to do with H1N1 and that they are on hand as a response to a recent family crisis.

By David Lawder and Thomas Ferraro WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday were falling in line behind a two-year budget deal negotiated behind closed doors, indicating that the normally rambunctious group of lawmakers is not spoiling for a year-end fiscal fight. Despite conservative groups denouncing the $85 billion plan, the Republican-controlled House could vote as early as Thursday to lock into place a measure that would minimize chances of any further government shutdowns at least until October 2015. Representative Tom Cole told reporters that a majority of his fellow House Republicans would vote for the budget deal, which would replace some of the indiscriminate, across-the-board agency spending cuts scheduled for the next two years. "A lot of support was expressed for it" during a closed meeting of House Republicans, Cole told reporters.
