Wabash Schools Evacuate Due to Flu

One middle school child has the flu, not even verified as the new flu, and the school evacuates... wow.

A letter on the district's Web site detailed the early release and said, "The best information we have is that there is no immediate risk to our community and there is no cause for alarm."

Health officials said the schools could stay open, but Shand made the decision to keep the kids home.

"We really wanted to be proactive and felt like it would not hurt to keep the kids home for a couple days," she said. "I don't believe there's reason to panic. We're taking all the measures we can."
