The district said the type of Meningitis has not been confirmed at this time.

The post said parents are encouraged to keep a watchful eye on their children’s health and seek medical attention if needed.

The district said all schools are being thoroughly cleaned this week with the added protection of having an outside professional company come in and clean the elementary campus to ensure the safety of students and staff.

The district also wants to remind parents February 14 and 15 are scheduled school holidays, so classes will resume on Monday, February 18.
