A student at Baltz Elementary School in Elsmere, Delaware may have swine flu. Based on the advice of Delaware public health officials, and current guidelines from the CDC, Baltz was closed on Monday, and will remain closed through Wednesday.

Barricades and state police officers greeted parents and students showing up Monday morning.

A bus took students who arrived at the school to the Elsemere Fire Hall to be picked up and sent home.

The school is the first in the area to close due to the swine flu.

The Red Clay School District, which runs the school, hopes to know by Wednesday if the student definitely has swine flu.
