BRUNSWICK, Ohio - Brunswick High School is the latest school to shut down, as the district battles a highly contagious norovirus.
Classes there, as well as the middle and elementary schools, will remain closed until next week. In addition, all building events are canceled, although sporting events will go on as scheduled.
With the school year coming to a close, this has a big impact on graduating seniors. They will not have to take their final exams unless they need to in order to pass a class.
Those seniors must report to school on May 28 at the regularly scheduled class period to take the needed finals. All others will be exempt from taking finals.
Prom and after prom are still scheduled to go on.
An outbreak of the norovirus began to hit students and teachers in the Brunswick School District last week.
Norovirus is an infection that causes serious bouts of vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramps.
