DOVER, Tenn. (AP) -- School officials in Stewart County have decided to cancel classes for the rest of the week because a large number of students have been sick.

According to WTVF-TV in Nashville, the director of the county schools, Dr. Phillip Wallace, said community health officials recommended closing the schools after numerous reports of flu as well as a stomach virus among students.

Parents were notified of the closures by an automated call, and classes will resume on Monday.
