More than 300 Stuarts Draft High School students missed classes this week in what district health officials called an upswing of suspected H1N1 virus cases.

In recent weeks, students across the county missed school, complaining about flu-like symptoms, Augusta County Schools Superintendent Gary McQuain said Thursday.

Stuarts Draft High School counted about 100 absent students Tuesday, and 60 more absences Thursday, according to school officials. More specific numbers were not available.

“This is an earlier flu than normal,” McQuain said. “The numbers have gone down in the past couple of days and my guess is that it will pop up elsewhere.”
