— The absentee list is growing at one Lee County school.

On Friday, 97 children missed class at B.T. Bullock Elementary School. Previously, 70 children were listed as absent.

Health officials said they still think the illness is viral. Water tests at the school were normal and there were no common food patterns with the sick children.

The children have all had the same symptoms -- nausea and diarrhea.
