U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan says schools should be prepared to keep teaching even if H1N1 flu sickens large numbers of students.

Speaking at a D.C. elementary school Monday, Duncan urged educators to prepare online materials and other resources to ensure students can continue learning even if they have to stay home.

Duncan was joined by U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and representatives from companies such as Apple and Microsoft, which are working with the Education Department to offer resources to schools severely affected by H1N1 flu.

Sebelius says clinical trials of the H1N1 flu vaccine "look good" and she says health officials will work with schools when vaccinations are administered possibly by mid-October.
