Several people became ill at a Toronto elementary school Thursday, including one student who was taken to hospital.

Emmy Milne of the Toronto District School Board says paramedics were called when one student fell ill.

That student was taken to hospital and the others were assessed on the scene.

Ms. Milne says the school will be cleaned overnight as a precaution.
