Widespread Illness Forces the Closing of The Children's Center
An outbreak of flu-like symptoms is prompting officials with Montgomery Public Schools to close The Children's Center in Montgomery.
Montgomery Public Schools Superintendent Barbara Thompson made the decision after consulting with nursing staff and the county health department.
Today, roughly half of the students and staff at The Children's Center had contracted one or more contagious illnesses. These illnesses are said not to be life threatening.
The center will be closed from Wednesday, May 16 through Friday, May 18.
During this time, deep sanitizing will be conducted throughout the entire campus.
