Shelby County school reopens after flu concern

Shelby County, Tx (KTRE) - Excelsior ISD, which is located about 12 miles west of Center says it will re-open Tuesday. The school did not have classes on Monday after a student tested positive for Type A flu last week. School officials have not received word one way or another if the case is a confirmed H1N1 flu, but state health officials say NO cases of H1N1 flu have been confirmed for Shelby and Nacogdoches counties. Officials feel it is safe to resume school since absenteeism has been very low in the school district of about 100 students.
