Mass illness forces schools to close

Posted:

The flu season has caused one local school district to close their doors.

Constantine public schools located in St. Joe County, Michigan had so many students and faculty come down with the flu that the school district was closed Monday and Tuesday.

Superintendent Chuck Frisbie says that 25 percent of the students and 40 percent of the faculty caught an illness.

The school district plans to resume classes tomorrow.
