New Richmond School District investigates mystery illnesses at Middle School
Today is the last day of classes at New Richmond Middle School -- but many youngsters have started their summers early, after they got sick this week. Superintendent Jeff Moberg said there were 115 absences on Wednesday morning, and around 40 left during the day. Moberg said there were less than ten new cases reported yesterday. Still, dozens of people will be absent today, since school officials asked parents to keep their youngsters home for 48 hours after they recover.
