One thousand kids at a high school in Virginia report being ill during the epidemic.

A high school in Virginia last week had to dismiss about 1,000 pupils and a few staff members due to flu-like symptoms and stomach aches.
Allen Hicks, the principal of Stafford High School, informed parents of a “illness outbreak” in a letter that was distributed to them on Friday.
In the letter, Hicks stated, “We are now looking into the symptoms and collaborating with the health department to discover the sickness’ primary cause.”

He said that learning will go on as usual and that the school had not planned to close the building. When they return to class, students will have “ample time” to complete any missing assignments, according to Hicks.

According to Hick, the janitorial crew of the high school was tasked with performing a “extensive and comprehensive” wipe-down of the entire structure. He also mentioned that high touch-point area cleaning and electrostatic cleaning will continue through Friday and Saturday.

The outbreak, DC’s FOX 5 reported , is under investigation by the Rappahannock Area Health District. Meanwhile, according to the station, Stafford County Public Schools cancelled all extracurricular and athletic events through the weekend.
