Darren Doyle, story:
Edmonson County School Superintendent Patrick Waddell has announced that schools in Edmonson County will be closed Thursday, March 5, 2020 and Friday, March 6, 2020, due to continued illness.
"Attendance has been below normal for the past few weeks and we have seen a more drastic decline this week," Waddell said in a statement. "Area clinics are also reporting an increase in positive flu cases as well as upper respiratory and strep throat."
All practices and other school activities will also be suspended during the closing. All schools will reopen on Monday March 9th. This will be the third time this school year that Edmonson County Schools have closed as a result of significant lower attendance due to illness.
"As always, we hope our students, their families and our staff take this time to get better," Waddell added.
He also said that the school system will utilize NTI Days #5, and #6 for Thursday and Friday of this week.
