LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas elementary school was closed Friday because of student illnesses resulting from what authorities called a stomach bug.

The Southern Nevada Health District said it was investigating a cluster of gastrointestinal illnesses among students at Doral Academy Red Rock Elementary School.

The health district told parents in a letter Thursday that the school would be closed Friday for a deep cleaning to prevent future illnesses.
