(MNN) A flu outbreak is blamed for the closure of a small school in northeastern Minnesota.
The Tower-Soudan Elementary School will be closed for the rest of the week.
The superintendent said 59 of the 78 students in grades K-through-6 were out with the flu Wednesday and four staff members are ill.
Classes are also canceled Monday because of a teacher workshop on Martin Luther King Day.
