It's early in the school year, but illness is already taking a toll in Detroit Lakes schools.

"We had a run yesterday on kids leaving," Detroit Lakes Superintendent Doug Froke said Tuesday.


The day started with 8-10 kids staying home sick, but another 14 went home sick within the first several hours of school, and another eight students went home sick within a few hours after that.
