A Greenville County Schools official has confirmed that 84 students and 10 teachers are absent from Augusta Circle Elementary School Monday mostly because of illness.
School district spokeswoman Beth Brotherton said school custodians are doing extra cleaning at the school, which has 532 students in kindergarten through fifth grade.
“Only two students have been to see the nurse today, and none have been sent home sick, which is usually a good sign,” Brotherton said.
She didn’t specify the type of illness affecting the school.
