School closed for illness

October 20, 2009 (CHICAGO) More than 40 percent of the student body is out sick, more than 900 students.

School officials have decided to close Wednesday through at least Friday.

Extracurricular activities will still take place Tuesday, but all athletic and parent night activities are postponed until further notice.

While the school remains closed, teachers will be in contact with students, updating them on the situation.

All homework assignments, tests and projects will be re-scheduled when the school reopens.

School officials say they are not aware of any student who has tested positive for the H1N1 virus.
