A D49 Spokesperson tells News 5 160 students from Falcon Middle School were sick today with a stomach virus.
According to the County Health Dept the symptoms can last for 24 hours, but they are advising parents to keep their children out for 48 hours if they are showing symptoms.
Friday is a half day before the district goes on Fall Break. Parents are encouraged to call their kids in sick if they are showing symptoms rather than risk spreading the illness.
