Body

We have a fifth confirmed case of swine flu in New Hanover County schools.

The school system sent out an alert about a possible H1N1 case at Sunset Park Elementary Tuesday night and canceled a book fair at the school. Wednesday, a state lab confirmed the diagnosis.

The student had been hospitalized and released.

Custodians cleaned and disinfected the school, but many anxious parents kept their kids home Wednesday. Attendance was down by about 25 percent.

Sunset Park and all other New Hanover County schools will remain open as usual.
