LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - More repercussions of the swine flu outbreak.  The Cameron Parish School Board isn't taking any chances, so as a safety precaution, they're canceling all in-state and out-of-state field trips for the rest of the school year.

They say efforts will be made to obtain refunds from venues that have already been paid.  School officials are asking parents to be patient as those details are worked out.

The school board says administrators will work with teachers to plan alternate activities. The athletic and co-curricular competitions will go on as scheduled, unless they are canceled by state officials.
