About 40 children have recently called in sick at Vista Grande Elementary school in Rancho Palos Verdes with symptoms of the Swine Flu. One student has been diagnosed with the flu strain, but had a very mild case of the swine flu and has returned to school. The students who have called in school have all been exposed to the student with the swine flu.
School district officials have been quick to point out that the cases so far have been mild and no more serious than regular flu outbreaks. No need to close the school was seen.
