GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - School District 51 says there are about 40 students out sick from Orchard Mesa Middle School. That number is drastically down from the more than 100 kids who were out last Friday.

102 kids went home from Orchard Mesa Middle School today with what school officials are saying is a form of intestinal virus or stomach flu.

That's about one-fifth of the school.

Over the weekend, classrooms were disinfected.

Classes resumed this morning, and District 51 spokesperson, Christy McGee tells KKCO 11 News it doesn't appear any teachers were sickened.

    Could it be that these kids were part of the host of people that attended the Hunger Games at midnight the night before?
