CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A student at Lindblom Math and Science Academy on the South Side has died of meningitis.

School officials say the 16-year-old student was found dead Monday at home.

Though Meningococcal disease is spread by close contact with infected individuals, CPS says this student was infected with a non-contagious form of meningitis.

Officials say Lindblom will be closed Wednesday out of what they're calling an "abundance of caution."
