A Jeffco Public Schools charter school in Arvada will be closed through May 8 after one of its students tested positive for the H1N1 flu.
Lynn Setzer, spokeswoman for the district, said the student is expected to make a full recovery, but Excel Academy will be closed this week "as a precaution." The school's 450 students will work from home during the week.
State health officials have confirmed four cases of H1N1 in Colorado, including two cases in Jeffco, with each patient expected to fully recover. The other Jeffco case was reported to be a man in his 20s.
