HILLSBORO, OR (KPTV) -

The Washington County Health Department is investigating a stomach virus outbreak at Quatama Elementary School in Hillsboro.

According to the school district, a number of students have been sick and vomiting.

A letter was sent out to staff and students encouraging parents to keep their children home from school if they are sick, and shared ways to prevent the virus from spreading.

The district says they deep-cleaned the school with a hospital-grade disinfectant on Thursday, and will be repeated on Friday
