Schools Dismissed Due to Sickness


Two South Central Kentucky school systems are closing for the rest of the week because of the flu.

Administrators from both Edmonson and Metcalfe Counties say a high number of absences due to illness have prompted them to cancel school Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, January 31 through February 1.

Officials in Edmonson County say this morning’s absentee rate was 88 percent and dropping throughout the day.

Metcalfe County’s attendance rate was below 90 percent today.
