A Green Bay school has cancelled classes for the rest of this week, after a kindergartner died from viral meningitis on Tuesday. Trinity Lutheran Principal Brett Jones said a cleaning crew disinfected the school building as a precaution.
Jones said they’ll have pastors and counselors available for those who need some help dealing with their grief. In addition the school will have therapy dogs on hand Monday to help students.
Jones said viral meningitis is not contagious, so other students are not in danger of catching the disease. But he added that many parents are getting their children tested, as a precaution.
