Due to widespread illness among teachers, students and staff members, several area school systems closed today (Thursday February 8th) and will remain closed tomorrow (Friday Feb. 9th).
They are: Anderson County; Clinton city schools; Campbell, Knox and Union counties. In addition the Boys & Girls Club of the Tennessee Valley serving Anderson County will also remain closed.
Administrators say that custodial and maintenance crews will be deep-cleaning classrooms, doors, buses and anywhere where germs can spread.
The hope here is that the extra days off will give sick students and staff members a chance to get better before everybody heads back to class on Monday morning.
