GROTON, MASS. (WHDH) – Students at a Groton primary school, Florence Roche, were dismissed at 12:15 p.m. due to a virus that has infected several students at the school.
According to Groton Superintendent Laura Chesson, the decision was made because of “the rapid spread of the virus and the age of the students”.
She said the recommendation only affected this one school and that parents should expect an update on the situation via email on Sunday evening while the team continues to evaluate health data.
Chesson did not say how many students have the disease or what symptoms they have.
