It comes after an apparent stomach virus led to widespread illness in several district schools.

The district says cleaning crews are sanitizing schools during the closure. Most Albany schools were open Monday, but the district says there was a jump in absences as many families kept their children home for precautionary reasons.

Schools will also be closed Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday.
