ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) - Montgomery County Public School officials say they're closing Rockville High School until further notice due to a probable swine flu case involving a student.
School officials say the school will be closed on Friday under the order of state and county health officials.
Deputy Secretary for Public Health Frances Phillips says the student represents the ninth probable case of swine flu in the state, but there are no confirmed cases yet.
Montgomery County's health director Dr. Ulmer Tillman says the student last attended school on Monday. School officials were alerted to the case around 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

Montgomery County has a mess of Hispanics, Marylands most liberal county. Would be interesting to know if the student is American.
Then again, in this region they close a school if a thermometer is dropped to the floor and spills its drop of mercury.
I went to Rockville High. It is now 20-30% hispanic. Rockville is now becoming West Wheaton if you know what I mean.....
Maryland "Freak State" PING!
Is the student a legal alien or are the parents?
Odds in Monkey County?
I’m certain it is a Hispanic student.... I just “feel” it....
NO AMNESTY, just cede Montgomery County to Mexico.
Yep I went to Rockville High School back in the days. After I graduated, the demographics changed completely, or at least it appears to me.
