Due to what district officials call a “gastrointestinal illness outbreak,” a League City elementary school campus was forced to start the weekend earlier than usual.
According to a Clear Creek ISD spokesman, Hyde Elementary School near FM-518 at Columbia Memorial Parkway will be closed on Friday to conduct a CDC-recommended deep cleaning of its classrooms and facilities.
School administrators suspected a widespread sickness following Thursday’s absence of 130 students and staff. There are 671 students enrolled in the school.
