Occohannock Elementary reopens Monday

(WAVY)

CAPE CHARLES, Va. (WAVY) – The elementary school that closed early because of a high number of sick children has reopened for Monday after crews cleaned and sanitized the school.

Occohannock Elementary spokeswoman Pam Lilliston told WAVY.com around 30 students at the school exhibited flu-like symptoms, so they sent students home at 1 p.m. Sept. 19.

Now the Eastern Shore kids should be heading back to class Sept. 22. Administrators sent letters to parents telling them kids who went home with a sore throat cannot return without a signed doctor’s note and those with a cough will have to wear a mask.
