More than 50 students at Pennsauken Intermediate School were sent home this week because of flulike symptoms.

Camden County officials are working with the state Department of Health to determine whether the symptoms were caused by the seasonal flu or something else, county spokesman Ken Shuttleworth said. Test results are expected some time next week. Pennsauken Superintendent James Chapman yesterday said the district was following Department of Health recommendations. The school administration sent a letter to parents Thursday urging them to keep the ill students home for at least seven days.
