“Today is a sad day for the North Bergen family as one of our own students has unfortunately passed away. Additionally, we would like to express our deepest sympathies to the family of our student, our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are with them during this difficult time,” Solter said in a statement.

“Due to the recent flu virus outbreak nationwide we have been disinfecting our desks and common surfaces in our school district. We are also urging parents to not send their kids to school if they are suffering from flu-like symptoms and to get them medical assistance if they are.”

The 6-year-old girl was a student at Lincoln School, sources told Hudson County View.

No further information was immediately available.
