COLUMBIA -- A Roman Catholic school in central South Carolina has reopened after it closed to clean the campus when more than 20 percent of its students became ill. Cardinal Newman School in Forest Acres had closed Wednesday to clean up following a flu-like illness. The school has 485 students in grades 7-12 and Principal Jacqualine Kasprowski says usually about 3 percent are absent on any given day. About 6 percent were out Thursday. The State newspaper reported that 15 percent of the students were out Monday. Nearly 100 students were out Tuesday and another 18 students became sick at school. Students complained of a lingering stomach virus or flu-like symptoms that included respiratory and throat problems. The school told state health officials they used a fogging disinfectant normally used in locker rooms. ------ Information from: The State,
