A high school in Laurel, Maryland is closed today as a precaution against swine flu infections. Approximately 100 of St. Vincent Pallotti High School's 500 students were absent Tuesday.

Principal Steve Edmonds says they were out for a variety of reasons, but at least five of them had confirmed cases of swine flu. Edmonds says he is closing the school tomorrow to allow a crew time to do a deep clean. He expects to reopen Pallotti Thursday morning and hopes daily routine cleaning will keep infections down in the future.
