BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — In a tweet posted Friday, the Oak Mountain Eagles Basketball announced that their evening games will be canceled due to a flu outbreak at the school.
Oak Mountain High School Principal Kristi Sayers told CBS 42 that the basketball games were canceled because three of the four seniors that would have been honored for Senior Night are sick. Sayers said that there are 67 confirmed cases of the flu (out of 1,515 students) at Oak Mountain High School.
Multiple school systems throughout Central Alabama have closed schools and canceled school activities because of the high numbers of staff and students showing flu and flu-like symptoms.
