“I’m iffy, but what can you do?,” said Keith Williams, whose daughter is a fifth-grader at the school. “She can’t stay home and not get an education.”
Christian Jablonski, who provides after-school care for four Britt students, said the parents were anxious.
“They were hoping with the three-day weekend (the students) would be in the clear, but they were still concerned,” Jablonski said.
School officials said last week the students likely became ill from Norovirus, which causes vomiting and diarrhea. A health department official said Tuesday it is still investigating what caused the illness. Health officials are encouraging people to wash their hands before eating or handling food and after using the bathroom or changing diapers.
