    Keep the doors closed Monday Febuary 8 as well. The sickness has more than tripled over night!! This sick bug is a monster. Do not risk more spreading please. Teacher’s are also falling very ill. Think about the teachers as well as our students at Byron Center Charter. Even if the Principle stays healthy, keep more precaution available to us.
