ASHFORD, N.Y. (WKBW) — West Valley Central School in Ashford closed Friday due to "illness."

The school announced the news on Twitter. It did not specify what illness prompted the closure.

We reached out to school officials Friday morning via email asking:

  • what illness or illnesses closed the school
  • whether students, staff or both reported being ill
  • what other precautions are being taken by the school

We will update this article once we get answers to our questions.
