SOUTHLAKE (CBSDFW.COM) - Some students in the Carroll Independent School District on Thursday will have their school day interrupted thanks to the West Nile Virus. Children at Old Union Elementary School and Rockenbaugh Elementary School, both in Southlake, will be told to stay indoors for recess and physical education classes.

The two schools are close to a location where officials found mosquitos infected wtih the West Nile Virus. Both schools plan on keeping kids indoors as much as possible on Thursday and Friday, just as a precaution.

Southlake plans to do targeted ground spraying in a half-mile radius from Rockenbaugh Elementary School after dark on Thursday night.

After that spraying, the school district’s maintenance staff will be at both elementary schools to clean off the playground equipment and all outdoor benches before classes begin on Friday morning.
