School is back in session and germs are having a field day - Parents at of students at Peyton Elementary School are finding that out first hand. Second graders at the school are all getting doses of antibiotics to ward off the symptoms of whooping cough.
The Cabell-Huntington Health Department visited the school Tuesday to hand out the medicine. Word from the department - a second-grader has been exposed and treated, but that student's diagnosis is still not confirmed. Just to be safe, that student's classmates are getting medication.
