Some Chicago parents say they won't let their kids go back to school Thursday, after more than two dozen school children were taken to area hospitals on Wednesday.

The 31 students from Cameron Elementary School were all in the same art class together.

Chicago Public Schools says all were treated and released.

Thursday morning's Chicago Sun-Times quotes a fire department spokesman as saying the symptoms were "psychosomatic," meaning once a couple students complained the itchy feeling spread to others.
