Students return to school after stomach bug scare
WESTON, Fla. (WSVN) -- The school day is feeling more routine again for children at Manatee Bay Elementary after an illness made hundreds of students sick and prompted parts of the school to be closed for cleaning.
Students were allowed back inside the cafeteria for lunch Monday after a thorough cleaning job. The playground also reopened.
The school scrubbed down and sanitized over the weekend after students got sick and had to go home and stay home.
More than 300 students caught the highly contagious stomach flu, Norovirus, over the past week and a half.
