Claiborne Parish school closed for second day

Flu outbreak prompted officials to close Summerfield High School Friday & today

SUMMERFIELD, La. - Summerfield High School in Claiborne Parish, which was closed Friday, and also is closed today, will re-open Tuesday, according to Claiborne Parish Superintendent of Schools William Kennedy.

The school was closed due to the large number of students who were ill with the flu, strep throat and stomach bug.

Kennedy said all the schools have been affected, but officials are closely monitoring the situation, which appears to be improving. However, the issue isn't just the student, as teachers have also been ill, he said.
