MEDFORD (WAOW) -- Medford school leaders say they don't know how the school closings there will impact the rest of the school year.

Yesterday the Medford School District announced it's closing its door until Monday because a large number of students are reporting flu-like symptoms.

That means all after school activities and sporting events are either canceled or postponed.

Changes to the athletic schedule are as follows:

Cross Country

The Great Northern Conference cross country meet which was scheduled for Saturday, October 17, 2009, has been rescheduled for Monday, October 19, 2009, starting at 4:30 p.m. at Medford.

Volleyball

1)   The girls volleyball game vs. Merrill which was scheduled for Tuesday, October 13, 2009, at Medford, has been rescheduled for Monday, October 19, 2009, with JV starting at 5:30 at Medford, with the varsity match to follow.  The Frosh volleyball game will be held at MAMS - not at MAES, starting at 5:30 p.m.
