Illness causes temporary school closing

St. Mary’s School, Williamstown, was closed this week as school administrators attempt to determine what caused one student to become faint and another fall ill during a morning assembly May 21.

The two students were transported by ambulance to Kennedy University Hospital in Washington Township for evaluation. Teams from Monroe Township Police, Monroe Ambulance, Williamstown Fire Company and the Office of Emergency Management were dispatched to the school to investigate. The studies on the cause of the problem remain inconclusive.

Patricia Mancuso, principal, and Father Cadmus D. Mazzarella, pastor of Our Lady of Peace Church, the sponsoring parish for the elementary school, notified parents of the week’s closure. Parents have been promised updates whenever more information becomes available.

The school had a scheduled closing for Friday, May 25.
