Trenton Pre-K Program Recovers From Sickness
TRENTON, Tenn. -- Attendance in the Trenton Pre-K program has gone up significantly since previous to fall break, according to Superintendent Sandra Harper.
Only 8% of the students in the Pre-K program were absent Monday.
Nearly one-third of children in the pre-K program were reported absent on September 27, due to an outbreak of illness in the Trenton Special School District, according to the director, Sandra Harper.
The school district began seeing cases of sickness in their pre-K, 4 and 5-year old programs in mid-September, according to Harper. The outbreak started with a few cases then slowly increased. As a result of the illnesses, the Department of Public Health has been working closely with school officials.
