Nazareth Academy Grade School, which teaches about about 200 Catholic students, is closed Wednesday due to illnesses, according to their website.

CBS Philly reported that officials at the northeast Philadelphia school said there were several students who called out sick earlier this week.

The television station said a cleaning crew is disinfecting the school, which is expected to re-open Thursday.
