The influenza outbreak is causing large number of absentees at schools in Jennings County - so many that one of the schools is closed for the rest of this week.

At Hayden Elementary School, the numbers were so high - 75 students were absent Tuesday, 25 percent of the 300-member student body - that Jennings County School Corp. called off school there for Wednesday through Friday.

When a school reaches 20 percent or higher absentee numbers due to illness, school officials are required to report to the state health department, according Teresa Brown, JCSC superintendent. Hayden Elementary School surpassed that threshold Tuesday
Brown reported the numbers to the Indiana Health Department and also consulted with Pam Petry at the Jennings County Health Department and other health care professionals before deciding Tuesday to close Hayden for the last three days of this week.

"We are closing the school to prevent the spread of illness," Brown said. "Hayden students will be having e-Learning Days on those days.
"While Hayden Elementary School is closed, our custodians will be disinfecting and cleaning the school extensively along with buses," she added. "We are also practicing that at our other schools as well."

Petry commended JCSC for being proactive.

1933 revisited in NV
1933 revisited in NV
Nora and Clyde Campbell are dressed for the occasion as they stand in front of one of the Ford Model A vehicles parked on East O&M Avenue's iconic brick pavement Sunday afternoon. They were among over 200 people who showed up for the reenactment of a 1933 photo taken at the same location. Photos and videos from the event will submitted to the HGTV show "Home Town Take­over!" in hopes that North Vernon and one of its buidlings will be selected to be featured in one of the episodes. A story and more photos will be in this week's edition of the Plain Dealer.-Staff Photo by Bryce Mayer
