WAUSEON, OH (WTOL) -

Illness is everywhere this time of year, and it's hard to stay healthy when the people you are around every day are getting sick.

Places like schools are especially susceptible to illnesses. 

New Horizons Academy in Wauseon announced the school will be closed the rest of the week due to the number of illnesses with students and staff.

CEO Matt Rychener said 40-percent of their students were out sick on Tuesday.

New Horizons Academy serves special needs children and medically fragile students, so it's important that these children stay healthy.

Rychener said the school is planning to open on Monday.

In the meantime, the school is being cleaned and sanitized.
