New York (AP) -- The head of a New York City high school says one of the 28 people who have confirmed cases of swine flu at the school is a teacher.
Brother Leonard Conway of St. Francis Preparatory in Queens said Monday that 10 teachers are experiencing flulike symptoms.
He says that 160 students have called out sick since last week and that parents have called about other new cases.
City officials said earlier that tests had confirmed 28 definite cases and 17 probable cases of swine flu at the school.
An outbreak of swine flu has killed dozens in Mexico, where some St. Francis students recently went on spring break.
St. Francis has closed at least for the day.
Conway says officials will meet Tuesday to decide when to reopen.
