Another case of viral meningitis has been reported at a Mid-Michigan School.

A student at Fiedler Elementary in the Kearsley Community School District was diagnosed with the virus.

In a letter sent home to parents, the district said the student has not been in school since Oct. 8.

The district said it is working with the Genesee County Health Department to respond appropriately.

Symptoms of viral meningitis include fever, severe headache, stiff neck, sensitivity to bright lights, drowsiness or confusion, and nausea and vomiting.

If you or your child has any symptoms you should seek medical attention immediately, the district said.

The viruses that cause viral meningitis are contagious.
