Virus closes school Friday at Sycamore Elementary

Sycamore Elementary School

School will be be closed all day Friday, Dec. 1, at Sycamore Elementary on 142nd Avenue west of Dorr because of a severe outbreak of what is suspected to be a norovirus, but the Allegan County Health Department disagrees. One parent reported that nearly 100 children were out sick Thursday and Hopkins schools officials indicated they were hoping three consecutive days off would take care of the problem. Custodians and bus drivers will spend time cleaning and disinfecting facilities the children use in the meantime.
