About 500 students attending Westfield Community School in Algonquin are sick with the norovirus.

Officials say nearly one-third of the students at the elementary and middle schools stayed home today with what's more commonly called stomach flu or food poisoning.

Those schools are in the same building.

Officials say it was cleaned and disinfected yesterday and today and the cleanup will continue through the weekend.
