Classes canceled at Berean Christian School after illnesses reported

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Classes have been canceled at Berean Christian School in West Palm Beach after several illnesses were reported.

The school confirms it is dealing with a gastro-intestinal issue which it says was isolated to the secondary school. The sickness so far is within the 7th to 12th grades but out of an abundance of caution the school sent everyone home today.

The school will clean and wipe down classrooms over the weekend and will stay in contact with parents.

If parents notice their children are sick they have been asked to let the school know. A school spokesman said the school is recommending the children who are sick get a stool sample at the doctor so they can determine if it is norovirus.

The school notified the Palm Beach County Health Department which said in a statement, "at this time there is no confirmed diagnosis as we have to look at all possible causes consistent with symptoms".

Parents have received phone messages to pick up their children.
