Tonawanda Elementary closed for swine flu

May 3, 2009

Tonawanda Elementary School will be closed this week after a fourth-grade student was confirmed to have the swine flu virus.

The school will be closed Monday, May 4, through Friday, May 8, by order of the Waukesha County Health Department. The school is expected to reopen Monday, May 11.

District officials said lost class time will not be made up; teachers will prioritize curriculum for the remaining school year.

Superintendent Matt Gibson notified district families of the closure via a recorded phone message, asking that Tonawanda students avoid contact with one another during the week.
