WARSAW — Due to the high number of cases of influenza among students and staff, Warsaw Christian School will be closed for the next three days.
Wednesday, March 27, Thursday, March 28 and Friday, March 29, will be E-Learning days.
Administrator/Head of School Doug Buller said approximately 28 students were out sick this week as well as five teachers. Three more students left earlier today due to illness.
School was dismissed early today due to scheduled parent-teacher conferences, although several of the conferences had to be rescheduled due to faculty illness.
According to Buller, the situation has been building up over the past two weeks. It is estimated that 16 percent of students/staff were out sick as of this morning.
“I felt it was important to not let this keep spreading,” said Buller.
Warsaw Christian School will resume classes following spring break. Students and staff members will return Monday, April 8, with a scheduled 2-hour delay.
