FORT WORTH — The Fort Worth Independent School District will temporarily close all of its schools until further notice, effective Thursday, April 30, 2009. Schools will likely not reopen any sooner than Monday, May 11.

This follows the official confirmation of one case of swine flu at one campus (previously a probable case) and the announcement that there are three other probable cases at three other schools.

Superintendent Melody Johnson, Mrs. Lou Brewer, director of the Tarrant County Public Health Department, and Dr. Sandra Parker, medical director of the Tarrant County Public Health Department, jointly made the announcement at a news conference Wednesday evening.

Additional details will be added to the District Web site as they become available.

Other area schools have closed, but this is the first major district.
