Florida student dies hours after visiting school health clinic

Florida school officials said they do not believe a sixth-grade student who died after visiting a campus health clinic on Wednesday had a highly contagious illness, but still urge parents to watch their own children for any signs of potential sickness. The boy, who was not identified, was a student at Horizon Academy at Marion Oaks in Ocala, News6 reported.

A public relations officer told the news outlet that the boy went from the school bus directly to the campus health clinic, and was then transferred to an area hospital before being taken to another hospital where he died. Officials did not disclose the exact illness, but urged parents to watch for stiff neck, confusion, fever, nausea or headache in their children.
