The Lincoln County Board Of Education says it has confirmed that E. coli that sickened some students in late April did not come from school lunches served.

A total of three students from Stanford Elementary School became sick. The health department says two of the children were hospitalized.

The school board said public health officials confirmed that there is no link between foods served at the school and the sickened children. The board also added that no other cases of E. coli infection have been confirmed in the community since April 23. The conclusion reached by medical officials is that there is no ongoing risk of infection to the public.

As a precautionary measure, the school board says all local health providers will continue to closely monitor the situation until the end of the school year. Notify your health care provider if your child becomes ill with symptoms such as diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever.
