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.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Tens of thousands of women each year might be able to skip at least some of the grueling treatments for breast cancer — which can include surgery, heavy chemo and radiation — without greatly harming their odds of survival, new research suggests.
By David Lawder and Thomas Ferraro WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday were falling in line behind a bipartisan two-year budget deal, indicating that the normally rambunctious group of lawmakers is not spoiling for a year-end fiscal fight. Despite conservative groups' denunciation of the plan and public opposition from some members associated with the conservative Tea Party movement, the Republican-controlled House was planning to vote on Thursday to pass the deal, Representative Kevin McCarthy, the third-ranking Republican told Reuters. A key House panel, on a 9-3 vote, cleared the legislation for debate and votes in the full House. The Republican-controlled Rules Committee refused to allow Democrats to offer an amendment to extend federal unemployment benefits that expire later this month.
