PLAINWELL, Mich. — School officials are trying to find out why so many students at the high school are sick.

Speculation is flying about the flu-like symptoms students at Plainwell High School are suffering, and whether it’s connected to food poisoning or a flu outbreak.

Officials are trying to tamp down the speculation. “At this point,” says a release, ” most of it has proven to be false and inaccurate.”

The district is taking addition measures to avoid further illness, such as sterilizing common areas in the school.

There are reports that both students and staff are experiencing vomiting and diarrhea.
