GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Officials are disinfecting a Greenville school after a 5-year-old student went home sick and died hours later.
Greenville County School District spokesman Oby (Oh-BEE) Lyles says the Blythe Elementary Academy student who died Tuesday may have had a viral illness.
Lyles says anyone who might have had contact with the student and now has symptoms like a runny nose, headaches or fever should see a doctor.
Counselors were at the school Wednesday to help students and staff.
Deputy Coroner Barry Wright says the kindergarten student went home sick Tuesday and died just after 7 p.m. that night. The child’s name has not been released.
