Memorial Elementary reopens after norovirus outbreak

Students can head back to class at a school in Winchendon after dozens on them became sick with a stomach bug.

Classes were cancelled at Memorial Elementary last week after nearly 60 students contracted norovirus.

Cleaning crews wearing masks and goggles spent the weekend disinfecting the building.

School officials said it started Tuesday when one student arrived for class, but didn’t feel well.
