SAINT JAMES -- Saint James School will suspend its academic and athletic schedules for several days beginning Friday because of several cases of flu, including two documented cases of H1N1, commonly known as swine flu.
The school's infirmary has been open 24 hours a day to care for the boarding students stricken with illness, school nurse Janice McWilliams said Wednesday.
Of the school's 231 students, there are 38 cases of flu, she said.
The first flu case appeared around Oct. 6, McWilliams said. That seemed to be an isolated incident, but on Oct. 8 and 9, the spread escalated, she said.
