FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — A charter school in Fall River was forced to cancel school Thursday due to the stomach bug.
According to a post on its Facebook page, Argosy Collegiate Charter School canceled classes for its middle and high school “due to the significant number of staff and scholars with the stomach bug.”
The post also urged students and staff to rest and stated the school would later give an update about school for Friday.
The stomach bug is another term for the norovirus, which includes symptoms such as stomach pain and nausea.
