Sickness closes school

School officials say their attendance is so low, they're calling off classes for the rest of the week due to illness.

Roundstone Elementary in Rockcastle County will close for the rest of the week because of the flu.

The superintendent says the attendance has been going down since last Thursday, and now stands at just 72%, not including some staff who have also called in sick.

There is no confirmation, at this time, that anyone is suffering from H1N1.
