Illness is forcing one school district to close its doors for a day.
Susie Smith, Principal of Faith Lutheran School in Bay City said the school will be closed on Friday, Feb. 3 because about 30 percent of their kindergarten-through-8th graders are out for a variety of illnesses.
Smith said some of the health issues include high fever, stomach flu and respiratory problems.
Teachers are being told to report at 9:30 a.m.
The Bay County Health Department participated in a conference call with a number of school districts on Thursday to discuss how to combat illness within the schools.
