School Superintendent Maria Navarro said officials were monitoring rumors of a planned 'sick-out' on Thursday afternoon.

"This action has the potential to cause delayed bus service, or no service for some routes. This action could also potentially leave students waiting at bus stops," Navarro said in a letter home to parents. "If a sick-out happens, CCPS will do its best to utilize all available transportation resources to ensure students arrive safely to and from school."
