Madison elementary schools to stay closed longer

MADISON, Ala. (AP) -Local health officials plan to announce at a 1 p.m. news conference Sunday whether other schools in north Alabama will also extend their school closures.

State Health Officer Don Williamson says there have been four
probable cases of swine flu reported in Alabama, including three
among students at an elementary school in Madison in north Alabama.

That school, Heritage Elementary, was scheduled to reopen next
week until Saturday's announcement.

Huntsville City Schools Superintended Ann Roy Moore urged
parents to "make plans for your children in the event that we have
to close any of our schools."
