DORA, N.M. (AP) — A small eastern New Mexico school district is closed due to illness among its staff.
Interim Superintendent Brandon Hays of Dora Consolidated Schools says schools are closed until Monday because illness among regular staff members and substitutes means the district can’t adequate cover its classrooms.
Hays says district employees planned to thoroughly sanitize the district’s facilities Thursday to reduce the spread of germs.
A letter sent by Hays to parents asks that kids be kept home if they have vomited overnight or in the morning before school and until they’ve been fever free for 24 hours without the help of medication.
