Another Flu Spike @ Paris Schools
By Chris Taylor
Paris, TN – School officials in Henry County and Paris, Tennessee say they may be experiencing another spike in flu outbreaks. Last week, attendance at both local systems was up. This week, absentee levels are rising again. About 300 students stayed home yesterday; nearly a tenth of the systems' total enrollment. The Paris Post Intelligencer reports the school systems last week were reporting an average of 250 students absent daily.
