Area schools are recovering from higher than usual absences due to the flu. WACO Superintendent Greg Ray says they are taking considerable steps to stop the spread of the flu virus. He says they’re hoping this will make the number of absences drop. Ray says around 40 students at the junior/senior high school were out with flu-like symptoms last week. That’s out of a total student population of 250.
