2 probable flu cases at Rye school complex
Westchester health officials have confirmed that two probable swine flu cases in the county came from the Rye Middle School-High School complex.
The Health Department and the Rye School District decided over the weekend to keep the school open. The district told parents in an e-mail sent Sunday night that a number of sick students have been tested, but that only two are probable cases.
The two students were originally thought to be from the Rye School of Leadership. District officials say neither of the students has been in the school since feeling the symptoms and were not in school when they got sick. They have been home recovering since.
The county is awaiting confirmation on both cases from the CDC. Health officials say there are no new cases pending in the county.
Last Monday the Rye School of Leadership was shut down and sanitized after students became ill with similar symptoms.Students at Rye Middle School and Rye High School are being asked to follow standard precautions like washing hands and staying home if feeling sick.
