St. Theresa's Eregi Girls High School has been shut down following the outbreak of an unknown disease in the school based in Kakamega County.
In a statement, the administration noted that the decision was taken after school administration and county government officials held a meeting at the institution.
As per the statement, Form one, two, and three students will break for one week as investigations into the disease continue.
Form fours will continue with learning as they prepare for the upcoming Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams which are set to begin in late October.
"The BOM, Ministry of Education officials, TSC representatives, and the school's sponsor agreed to allow Form 1, 2, and 3 students to break temporarily and are expected to report back next week once the situation has been carefully assessed and necessary measures put in place to prevent any recurrence of a similar situation.
"Also present were officials from the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), the Ministry of Education, Parents, the school's Board of Management (BOM) and the entire fraternity of the school," read the statement by the County Government of Kakamega.
On the other hand, the Kakamega County administration noted that its health officials are working with the Ministry of Health to ascertain the cause of the mysterious disease.
Blood samples from the 95 affected students have been sent to the Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) in Nairobi and Kisumu counties for further analysis.
The school's administration first noted that there was a disease outbreak after 95 students started experiencing difficulty in walking.
"The County government commits to ensure the safety and well-being of all students in learning institutions and assures that efforts will be made to create a conducive learning environment where students can thrive academically, free from disruptions and harm," read the statement in part.
Meanwhile, health officials are monitoring the progress of the 95 students who are admitted at various hospitals in Kakamega County.
