Eight More Schools Close, Four Reopen Friday

Thursday, May 21, 2009

The city's education department decided on Thursday to close eight additional schools because of concern over swine flu. Most of the school buildings are in Queens, but one is in the Bronx and another is in Brooklyn. That brings the total of school closures due to flu to 37 this week. Tomorrow, the city plans to reopen four school buildings that have been closed since last Friday. More than 15,000 public school students have been out of school this week due to the flu.
