The condition and number of the students who attend the school was not released.
There are many different types of meningitis, according to the Tennessee Department of Health, which is a general term for an infection or inflammatory process involving the lining of the brain and central nervous system. There is no relation between the cases of viral meningitis in Williamson County to the cases of fungal meningitis in Nashville where two of eleven people being treated, died. Viral meningitis can be contagious unlike fungal meningitis.
Bacterial meningitis can be life threatening within 24-hours. Last month a Middle Tennessee State University student died from bacterial meningitis.
School officials have notified parents and guardians via newsletters.
Anyone with meningitis questions can call a hotline set up by the TDH and the Tennessee Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222.
A couple cases of strep throat have also been reported at the school.

Courthouse in line for repairs, updates
May 25, 2013 15:50 GMT
MANCHESTER, Tenn. (AP) -- Officials in Coffee County are looking to update their historic courthouse instead of replacing the 141-year-old structure.
After all, they said the building is in pretty good shape. As far as repairs, it just needs some new paint and molding, as well as work to repair some water damage. But county maintenance director Robert Gilliam says the entire structure needs updating in order to make it last until the next century.
Gilliam and County Mayor David Pennington told the Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/19ivpQ6 ) that officials have taken care to maintain the building and it hasn't had any major renovations in decades.
Historical society spokeswoman Joanna Lewis said the group is trying to come up with fundraising ideas for the project.
