WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - A Rhode Island school district is taking its teachers' union to court after what it says is another sickout amid ongoing contract negotiations. Three Warwick district elementary schools closed Monday because so many teachers called in sick. Superintendent Philip Thornton says he has filed for the court to intervene, and expects a hearing Monday at the Kent County Courthouse. The Warwick Teacher's Union has said there was no official union-sanctioned action.
