BROOKS -- It didn't take long for illness to strike the Bullitt County Schools.
Bullitt County Schools Health Service Coordinator Lesa Bodine said that one case of Pertussis -- better known as Whooping Cough -- was confirmed in a Brooks Elementary student Wednesday.
Bodine said the school would be notified Thursday and that a letter from the Bullitt County Health Department would be distributed to parents.
Bodine said one case has been confirmed but that many cases were suspected before school started. She expected that more would be identified now.
