MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A school district near Duluth, Minn. decided to close for the day because of an outbreak of illness.

The South Shore School District in Port Wing, Wis. said they have been hit hard by whooping cough, strep infections, and the flu.

The district said they have had so many students and staff out recently, they decided to close school Thursday so they can stop the spread of illness.

Parent-teacher conferences and other school events planned this week have been cancelled, too.

There was already no school scheduled Friday and Monday, because of conferences and the Presidents’ Day holiday.

The district hopes that the long weekend will be enough to everyone healthy again.
