A flu outbreak has closed a school district in middle Tennessee for the rest of the week.

Pickett County Schools are closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday due to the flu.

Monday is Martin Luther King day, so kids won't go back to class until Tuesday.

This year's flu season has already begun, but doctors say it's already looking more mild than a brutal outbreak last year.
