Schools in US close due to flu

ABC News/AP:  Schools in 14 states have shut their doors on more than 160,000 schoolchildren as the nation’s swine flu crisis enters its second week.

Half of those children are in Fort Worth, Texas.

In total, more than 100 school systems have closed at least one school as the nation tries to stifle the spread of the disease. In Texas Wednesday night, officials announced that the entire Fort Worth school system would be closed through at least May 8 as a precaution, idling 80,000 children in 140 schools.
