3 Brooklyn schools closed for week

Three Brooklyn schools are being closed for the week because of swine flu concerns.

The schools are Bishop Kearney on 60th Street, Saint Brigid in Bushwick and Good Shepherd in Marine Park. Parents at Good Shepherd say they prefer to err on the side of caution.

Many of the parents took off work to watch their kids, but say it's worth it for their safety.
