All Huntsville ISD schools closed due to flu

HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) - All schools in the Huntsville Independent School District are closed until Thursday due to students and staff being sick.

A statement on the school's Web site says classes and extracurricular activities Tuesday and Wednesday at the eight campuses, with about 6,300 students, are canceled "due to a high rate of absences."

Concerns about swine flu and other illnesses have led to numerous absences at schools statewide.

Huntsville, with a population of about 37,000, is 60 miles north of Houston.
