Edmonson County Superintendent of Schools Patrick Waddell has announced that all EC schools will be closed on Friday, January 18, 2019 due to illness.
"We are currently at 87% attendance, which is borderline," said Waddell. "However, with the long weekend ahead with the holiday on Monday, we feel this is a good time to disinfect our buses and schools to try to stop the spread of illness."
Waddell also said that games for tonight and Friday night will be cancelled. The district game against Trinity scheduled for Monday night will be played as planned, due to it being a District 12 makeup game from earlier in the season.
"We will only cancel the Monday game if there is inclement weather, but other than that, we need to keep that on the schedule," he said.
