CELESTE, TX -- After three Texoma area school districts closed last week due to high numbers of students out sick, another North Texas school district has closed temporarily in an effort to stop the spread of what could be H1N1. Administrators at Celeste I-S-D tell us they made the decision to close yesterday for the rest of the week.
Twenty-three-percent of the Celeste's elementary students were absent earlier this week. They also tell us the JV football game scheduled for tonight against Wolfe City has been canceled, but that the varsity football game tomorrow will go on as scheduled.
Celeste ISD says letters were sent home saying schools would reopen next Tuesday after a scheduled holiday for students on Monday.
Administrators are asking parents not to let sick students return to school until they've been fever-free for 24 hours.
