P.S. 111 closed over H1N1 fears

A third school in the Bronx has been shuttered because of fears over swine flu.

Officials have announced that P.S. 111 on Baychester Avenue will be closed for five days after a number of students came down with flu-like symptoms.

Horace Mann School and the South Bronx Charter School temporarily closed their doors earlier this week. None of the three schools have any confirmed cases of the H1N1 virus.
