GRAND BLANC, MI (WNEM) -

A dozen Mid-Michigan schools now report a case, or suspected case, of meningitis.

Grand Blanc West Middle School is the latest to report a student with a case of viral meningitis. The district sent a letter home on Friday informing parents that a student was diagnosed with the illness. It’s not clear when the student was last in class.

All but one case of meningitis in Mid-Michigan students has been viral meningitis, which health experts say is fairly common. One student in the Swartz Creek school district was diagnosed with bacterial meningitis, which can be deadly.

Of all the cases, only two were not in Genesee County.
