AL school closed following flu outbreak

Posted: Updated:

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - A flu outbreak at a school in Huntsville moved officials to cancel classes Thursday and Friday.

Al.com reports administrators at Westminster Christian Academy sent emails to parents Wednesday saying their Brockway campus would close at 11:45 a.m. Thursday and would remain closed Friday.

The website reports over 60 students and seven staff members at the school have fallen ill in the past two days.

Administrators say the school's closure will give officials an opportunity to disinfect the building.

Westminster's elementary school, which is on a separate campus, will remain open.
