The Schalmont School District is dealing with Coxsackie virus. The district tells NewsChannel 13 it's taking action to stop the spread.
Coxsackie causes mild, flu-like symptoms, which usually begin with a fever.
Buildings and equipment have been disinfected after confirmed cases at the middle and high school.
The school pep rally and homecoming game on Friday were cancelled. A powderpuff game between junior and senior girls was planned under the lights instead.
The homecoming dance was still planned to go on.
