THE BRONX - At least half a dozen students were reportedly sent home from P.S. 53 Friday with flu-like symptoms.

No one from the school will confirm the situation. Alma Idahen, a regional health director that works with the Department of Education in the Bronx, says at least six students were sent home by the principal and school nurse.

Rumors are swirling that one of the six children recently got back from Mexico with her family.
