Summer school classes and related activities have been canceled until further notice in two Rusk County school districts: Ladysmith-Hawkins and Flambeau. The announcement was prompted by a confirmation of at least one case of whooping cough in a Flambeau student.

A Ladysmith school official says Flambeau students swam in the Ladysmith school pool this week making it necessary to cancel activities in both districts.

The cancellations include summer school classes, swimming activities, food programs and open gyms.
