Magoffin Co. schools temporary closed due to illness
The flu, stomach viruses, and other illnesses have spread to so many hundreds of students in Magoffin County that it prompted the schools to close last week. While students and teachers were out on Friday, the custodians were hard at work cleaning everything students touch. Before closing, the Salyersville Grade School had between 65 and 100 students absent per day. Some teachers were out sick too. The Magoffin County School Board closed all schools for an extended weekend to let everyone get well. Theyâ€™re scheduled to re-open on tomorrow.
