Darren Doyle, story:
Edmonson County Schools will be closed Monday, February 3rd, Tuesday, February 4th, and Wednesday. February 5th, according to a released statement from Superintendent of Schools, Patrick Waddell.
"After monitoring attendance the past few days and conversations with local health care providers, I have decided that the best course of action for the safety and well-being of our students and staff is cancel school on Monday, February 3rd, Tuesday, February 4th, and Wednesday, February 5th," Waddell's statement read. "All schools will be closed during this time."
He continued in the statement: "Also, it does not benefit us to call off school if we allow extracurricular activities to continue, so beginning after this evening's contests and continuing until Wednesday afternoon, all games, practices and activities with the exception of Saturday’s Regional Middle School Academic Team Tournament will be canceled."
The release also stated that all schools will reopen on Thursday, February 6th.
"I hope our students, their families and our staff take this time to get better," he added.
Supt. Waddell also noted that schools will utilize NTI Days #1, #2, and #3 for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of next week.
