H1N1 fears close 4 more Brooklyn schools

Four additional Brooklyn schools have decided to close because of fears about swine flu, bringing the total number of flu-related school closures in the borough to eight.

The four most recent closures are Yeshiva Magen David, Yeshiva Shaarei Torah, Masores Bais Yaakov and Yeshiva Tiferes YisRoel.

All the schools made the decision to close on their own and are expected to reopen next week.

The four shuttered schools join P.S. 160 in Borough Park, P.S./I.S. 384 in Bushwick, I.S. 318 in Williamsburg and M.S. 113 in Fort Greene. I.S. 318 is expected to reopen Tuesday, while students are expected back at M.S. 113 on Wednesday.
