SAN DIEGO -- Students at Sage Canyon Elementary were back in class Tuesday morning after an apparent virus sickened dozens of students and staff last week.

According to a letter sent to parents, dozens of students were nauseous and vomiting at the school Wednesday morning.

Classes were canceled, but resumed Thursday. Del Mar Union School District officials then decided to extend the closure Friday to prevent further spread of the suspected norovirus.

Parents were told to make sure their kids don't touch their face and keep their hands clean.

The Department of Health and Human Services is investigating the illness.

The district has hired a cleaning company to sanitize the classrooms, bathrooms and other common areas on the campus.
An open house scheduled last week will now take place tonight.
