Wind River Reservation schools closed due to flu


The Wind River Reservation in Wyoming has been hit hard by the flu.

The Fremont County School District closed all seven schools on the reservation after nearly a quarter of the student body reported absent on Tuesday.

At another school on the reservation, half of the students and three out of five teachers were out due to illness, the Associated Press reported.

The reservation is home to the Eastern Shoshone Tribe and the Northern Arapaho Tribe.
