ANDERSON, Ind. (WISH) — Anderson Preparatory Academy, a K-12 school with 772 students, will have e-learning days on Tuesday and Wednesday due to an outbreak of flu.
The school said Monday it is implementing its “virus outbreak protocol” because of the rate of absences. Several cases of influenza A, influenza B and strep throat have been reported, the school said in a Facebook post.
During the school’s e-learning days, crews will have time to thoroughly disinfect the buildings. All after-school activities for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday have been canceled, the school said.
On its Facebook page, the school encouraged students to use the e-learning days to wash and sanitize their backpacks and coats:
The school will evaluate progress on Wednesday to determine whether the school will reopen Thursday.
