Crews have been busy cleaning and dis-infecting the Lennox School district after an outbreak of illness.
Last Friday, 70 of the 400 elementary students and 14 high school students got sick and now the state health department is investigating and asking for parents help trying to pinpoint the source of the outbreak.
This is not typical spring cleaning.
While Lennox students are on spring break, custodians are wiping down everything from desktops to seats to tables to try and get rid of whatever caused students to get sick.
"We thought it was bad," superintendent Bob Mayer said.
Superintendent Bob Mayer says last week students began falling ill with symptoms of diarrhea and vomiting.
"It lasted longer than we thought it should and it was a concern, the numbers were rising and that's when we involved the Department of Health," Mayer said.
Two possible sources Mayer says are food contamination from the cafeteria or the FFA petting zoo the school held last week.
"We did have kids in our elementary school go to the petting zoo and some of them are sick, I don't know if it's a result of the petting zoo, but they were sick," Mayer said.
In addition to dozens of elementary students, a handful of high school students were also sick and Mayer says some of them participated in the petting zoo. And because, the health and safety of their students is their number one priority, Mayer says it's important to clean the school from top to bottom while they have the chance.
"Everything a kid could touch is getting wiped down and cleaned," Mayer said.
Mayer says the state is having parents fill out questionnaires to try and help them pinpoint a cause. But as for now classes will resume Monday.
