It is a real massacre that strikes the Victor-Duruy nursery school in Montgeron.
For a week, dozens of students, among the 180 in the establishment, have or have presented symptoms of the gastroenteritis type, with vomiting and diarrhea.
“The first cases started on Tuesday February 2.
My 4 and 5 year old kids got sick on Saturday, so I was.
Fortunately, it was quickly sorted out.

Faced with this situation, "the doctor of the academic direction, in connection with the regional health agency, decided to close the school until the end of the week", writes the mayor (LR) Sylvie Carillon in a letter sent to parents on Tuesday.
Information confirmed to us by the academic management.
Several doctors, who have seen certain children and teachers in consultation, "have diagnosed gastroenteritis," adds a member of the mayor's office of Montgeron.
The Covid trail ruled out
This scenario of a lightning gastro was also cleared by elimination.
“Food poisoning was ruled out because some of the sick children had not eaten in the canteen.
Antigenic tests have been carried out on adults, which have been found to be negative, which makes it possible to exclude Covid to date ”, continues the mayor's office.
However, the mother of students who contacted us is not completely reassured, pointing to "hygiene problems in the establishment, with toilets often blocked and a problem of access to soap".
