Angry 4 stomach viruses in 7 weeks

My 3rd grader just came down with the stomach virus... again! This is the 4th time in just 7 weeks. I took him to the doctor, she said he is fine. I am worried that the conditions at his school are not sanitary.
I spoke to the school nurse, and she said that one day last week, she sent 20 kids home with nausea, stomach pain, and vomiting. And, that the next day, there were 60 kids absent. (this is a small elementary school- only two classes per grade level)
What are your thoughts on this? Am I overreacting? What would you do if it were your kid? I don't want to send him back to that place! This has taken an unbelievable toll on my family.
