Officials have closed an Arizona primary school amid an outbreak of hand, foot and mouth disease. 

An unspecified, growing number of kindergartners and pre-kindergartners at Tse'hootsooi' Primary Learning Center have contracted the disease in recent days, according to Window Rock Unified School District. 

Parents at the school in Window Rock, the capital of Navajo Nation, have been warned to check their children for symptoms - such as reduced appetite and sores on the soles of the hands and feet - and to seek urgent medical attention. 

The school has been closed since Monday, and officials have warned parents of infected children that they may still be infectious after symptoms clear up.
