Crookston canceling school for rest of week, starting Wednesday

Crookston Public Schools are canceling classes Wednesday and the rest of the week because of the elevated number of absences prompted by students, faculty and staff with flu-like symptoms, the Crookston Times reported on its Web site this morning.

Parent-teacher conferences already had been scheduled for Thursday and Friday, meaning no classes those days. And Wednesday already is a scheduled early release date for classes because of a staff development initiative, the Times reported. School Superintendent Wayne Gilman said faculty and staff who lack flu-like symptoms would reporte for the development activity.
