Boy Attends School Via Skype

What do you do when you have a little boy who can't attend school because of a impaired immune system?  You figure out a way to let him attend school via Skype.  At least that's what Our Lady of the Presentation School in Missouri did.

Lukas is unable to attend school because his immune system is still recovering from a bone marrow transplant he received last year.  The transplant cured his Chronic Granulomatous Disease, but left his immune system devastated.
His immune system will eventually recover, but for now he has to stay germ-free. Right after he came home from Ohio, his family and the school immediately worked out a system where he could stay safe at home and still attend school.

This system so far seems to be working out great.  Lukas is able to maintain contact with his classmates as well as keep up with his studies.

My 13 year old son's best friend, who has leukemia, has to miss school sometimes because of immune system issues. He has attended school via Skype several times - I think it's wonderful!
