Lauderhill preschool reopens after 21 kids fall ill

LAUDERHILL, FLA. (WSVN) - A Lauderhill preschool reopened Monday, after nearly two dozen kids were sent to the hospital last week.

Parents and rescue crews took 21 sick kids from Ave Marie Friends Preparatory School for treatment of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and dehydration.

Officials said the children’s catered lunch on the day of the incident was likely the cause. However, the Florida Department of Health is still investigating the incident and the vendor providing meals to the school.

It’s still unclear exactly what caused the kids to get sick.
