Officials at Liberty Christian Academy in Fayetteville decided to temporarily close the school Thursday after dozens of students came down with the flu.Principal Duncan Edge told ABC11 that 70 of 328 students are out sick. Two of those have confirmed cases of swine flu. Four of 38 teachers are also absent and one is pregnant.

The massive number of absences prompted officials to close the school so it can be disinfected and cleaned. It will reopen next week.
