Suspected case of H1N1 hits Sunset Park Elementary

There is another suspected case of the H1N1 virus in a New Hanover County school. A student at Sunset Park Elementary is believed to have contracted the virus more commonly known as Swine Flu. The student has been hospitalized and was not at school Tuesday. Lab results will have to confirm the illness. Most Sunset Park parents received a phone message from the school about the suspected case, but Regina Wheeler and her daughter showed up Tuesday night for a book fair that had been cancelled. She is anxious to learn more. "I will have to call and find out what's going on. I hear the flu is real bad," Wheeler said. Custodians were at Sunset Park Tuesday night cleaning and disinfecting the school.
