Holy Angels Catholic School closing for rest of week due to flu

AURORA, Ill. – A suburban Catholic school is canceling classes for the rest of the week because so many students are sick with the flu.

The principal of Holy Angels Catholic School in Aurora, Ill., said 26 percent of the student population is out sick.

The school closure also means that sports are canceled along with other extracurricular activities.

The school will be disinfected while students are away.

Last year, the school closed down for a few days as well to disinfect.  It seemed to work, so parents seemed to be on board this year as well.

The teachers are losing an inservice day but the school year so far hasn't been extended.
