Fall Break Begins for Putnam Students

The Putnam County school system has not had any major issues with the H1N1 flu virus so far this year, but officials are taking a week off from classes anyway. Monday is the start of the regularly scheduled fall break for local students. They'll be out of class through Friday, October 16th. When they get back, the students will be in class until Thanksgiving. Meanwhile, at Tennessee Tech, classes are continuing in spite of a handful of reported swine flu cases. Health officials at the university say at least two dozen students have come down with the virus. They say students who have been diagnosed with either seasonal flu or swine flu are being directed to check with the health services department before returning to class.
