FIRST REPORT: YWN has just confirmed that Yeshiva Shaarei Torah [boys & girls divisions] in Flatbush is now the 4th Yeshiva to be closed due to the recent swine flu outbreak. Sources confirm to YWN that there is one case of Swine Flu in one of the schools, and classes have been cancelled until after Shavuos.
The following are the locations of the Shaarei Torah Schools:
Church Avenue & Ocean Parkway (Girls Elementary)
Ocean Avenue & Avenue M (Girls High School)
Coney Island & Ryder Avenue (Boys Elementary)
East 12th Street & Avenue P (Boys High School)
Yeshiva Shaarei Torah was in the news this past Friday, when a grate collapsed – sending 30+ girls to the hospital. [Click HERE for that story]
Please be advised that YWN is aware of a few additional Yeshivos which may be closing due to the Swine Flu outbreak as well. As soon as we have confirmed information, it will be posted.
