SWEET HOME, Ore. -- Many students are home sick in Sweet Home with what district officials describe as a stomach bug.

One student has a documented case of norovirus, district officials said. This comes shortly after a norovirus outbreak closed down schools in Albany.

In order to combat the virus, officials will be cleaning classrooms and buses before, during and after school. They are also working with the Linn County Health Department.

Parents should watch for stomach bug symptoms, such as diarrhea, stomach or intestinal cramps, nausea, vomiting, fever, weight loss, joint aches and muscle aches. Children experiencing these symptoms should stay home for an extra two days after symptoms have stopped.

“The health and well-being of our students is of the utmost importance,” the district said in a Facebook post.
