CHEVIOT, OH (FOX19) - A local school is shutting down due to illness.

St. Martin of Tours in Cheviot will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday because a high number of students have fallen ill. Students were already scheduled off on Thursday and Friday.

A school official says about 70 to 75 students called in sick Monday. The school has an enrollment of 223 in kindergarten through 8th grade.

School officials say the students are suffering from flu-like symptoms, but cannot confirm if it's the H1N1 virus.
