The villagers, including the parents of school children, blocked the Ranchi Bero road in protest.
Five children were reported dead while the condition of 19 is said to be critical. More than 60 students had fallen sick and about 30 were admitted at the hospital.
The school, situated at Baridih in Bero block, about 40 km from here, is run by the welfare department to ensure free education and food to tribal students.
"I had not imagined I would lose my son this way. The state government is responsible for the death of my son. Free education and food have taken a heavy price,"said a mourning father of a dead student.
Jharkhand Chief Minister Shibu Soren had suspended the school teachers and announced a compensation of Rs.100,000 to the kin of each of those dead.
"This is a crime against humanity. The culprit will not be spared,"said Soren, who is expected to visit the school on Friday.
