WATERVILLE -- A total of 263 students were out sick Tuesday with flu-like symptoms from Waterville senior and junior high schools, Superintendent Eric Haley said.
"I don't ever remember, during my tenure, having this many students out -- no," Haley said of his 24 years in the Waterville school system.
He said officials do not know whether the students have the H1N1 (swine flu) or the seasonal flu.
"Nobody's testing students for swine versus regular flu unless they are admitted to the hospital," he said.
Haley, who is superintendent of AOS 92, which includes Waterville, Winslow and Vassalboro, said that when he called Waterville Senior High School Monday to talk with Ann Bouchard, the school nurse, Bouchard told him 17 students were waiting to see her. Bouchard's office is located inside the main office.
"There were so many youths coming to see the school nurse, we had to set up a triage room -- a waiting area to get out of the main office (area)," Haley said. Nineteen percent, or 120 of the 610 Waterville Senior High school students were out sick Tuesday; 35 percent, or 143 of 414 Waterville Junior High students were out sick, according to Haley. He said the George J. Mitchell School and Albert S. Hall School, both elementary schools, had 5 to 8 percent of students out sick. The Vassalboro Community School had 10 percent, or about twice the norm, of students out sick.
