— Students returned to class Monday at Liberty Christian Academy, at 6548 Rockfish Road in Fayetteville. Principal Duncan Edge closed the school Thursday and Friday after days of widespread absenteeism.

This school, which opened in 1999, has a total enrollment of 328.

Edge said he made the move as a precaution. During the two-day shutdown, teachers and staff used bleach and anti-bacterial agents to scrub down walls, desks and other surfaces.

"We made sure we Lysol-ed everything, Clorox-ed everything the best we could," Edge said.
