No classes Friday at North Caddo Elementary/Middle School in Vivian

Illness closes three schools in Caddo, Sabine parishes

CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) - North Caddo Elementary/Middle School again is closed due to staffers and students being out sick with the flu and flu-like symptoms.

There will be no classes Friday at the campus in Vivian.

Caddo School District's custodial team is back at the school this afternoon and will resume cleanup efforts Friday.

"In the northern portion of our parish, we have seen a sizable increase in the flu and flu-like symptoms over the course of the past two weeks," Caddo School District spokeswoman Mary Wood said.

Classes at North Caddo Elementary/Middle are expected to resume Monday.

"We ask families to keep in mind guidance from the CDC and other health agencies, which caution parents to not allow students to return to school until they have been fever free for a minimum of 24 hours," Wood said.

The School District also is encouraging parents to take this opportunity to clean their children's personal items such as backpacks, jackets and lunchboxes.
