Students Stay Home after Outbreak

OAKLAND, Ore. — Oakland students got a short school week after a virus spread through the elementary, middle and high schools.

The district decided to send all students home Wednesday afternoon after several got sick.

Crews spent Thursday disinfecting the classrooms while students just enjoyed a surprise four-day weekend.

This school shutdown follows one a few weeks ago at Fir Grove Elementary in Roseburg. Health investigators figured out norovirus was to blame.

    I went to school and kids got sick with the flu. Which kills about 35 thousand people per year! Why all of a sudden are the school districts sending children home? Children get sick, thats how their immune systems strengths itself…

    Everyone panics about every little thing. I would be more worried about what Wall Street is doing, or the White House or Congress than I would be about a flu virus that’s been around for centuries!
