OOLOGAH, Okla. (AP) - The superintendent of a northeast Oklahoma school district says classes will be canceled Thursday following the death of kindergarten student.

It hasn’t been confirmed whether the death of the 6-year-old child on Monday was caused by a contagious disease. The student was sent home from school with a fever on Monday.

The Medical Examiner’s Office says the child’s cause and manner of death are pending a toxicology report. The Tulsa World (https://bit.ly/1xJsXCx ) reports the results are expected back between four and six weeks.

Superintendent Max Tanner sent a recorded voice message to all parents with students who attend Oologah-Talala Public Schools saying he was canceling classes on Thursday because of new information from health officials.

He says teachers and staff will still come to school Thursday for a professional development day, where they would be provided with additional information.
