School closed after kindergartener dies of meningitis

Posted:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- A parochial elementary school is closed in Green Bay following a kindergartener's death due to meningitis.

While Trinity Lutheran School is cleaned as a precaution, those who knew Jack Natzke are remembering the 5-year-old as rambunctious, fun and full of love. Maggie Hinz has a daughter in the same kindergarten class. Hinz says Jack brightened so many lives with his smile.

School officials say Jack died Tuesday after a brief battle with viral meningitis. WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/1KTBkn6 ) says classes resume Monday with counselors on hand for students and parents. Visitation is scheduled Saturday at Our Saviour Lutheran Church. The funeral is Sunday.
