Sick students at Las Vegas elementary school prompt investigation

The Clark County School District is working with the Southern Nevada Health District to investigate reports of multiple students feeling ill at a central Las Vegas elementary school.

Multiple Bell Elementary students have reported symptoms of nausea and vomiting, the district said in a statement Thursday.

The district said it plans to thoroughly clean the school, 2900 Wilmington Way, Thursday night in preparation for Friday classes. It also encouraged the public to practice sanitary habits, including the washing of hands after coughing or sneezing.
