Stomach bug forces Rosehill School to close Thursday in Joco

A gastrointestinal illness forced Rosehill Elementary to cancel classes Thursday. Shawnee Mission School District Spokeswoman Leigh Anne Neal said about 40 children and a few staff members went home sick today. By this afternoon, the problem had become so widespread that the school decided to cancel all classes on Thursday in order to clean and sanitize the entire building.
