Chandler Creek Elementary School was hit by a stomach virus Wednesday that resulted in 200 students being sent home. 

 The majority of the students were in kindergarten, first grade and second grade, according to Beth Brotherrton with Greenville County Schools. Principal Jane Mills called parents Wednesday morning to inform them of the illness.

 School and district maintenance crews did additional cleaning Wednesday afternoon, including changing air filters, Brotherton said.
