DEKALB COUNTY SCHOOLS TO BE CLOSED THURSDAY AND FRIDAY DUE TO ILLNESS
"We're going to close DeKalb County Schools Thursday and Friday in hopes that some of this sickness and stomach viruses and things like that will clear out," said Director of Schools Mark Willoughby
"We've had a lot of students who have been out sick along with teachers and other folks who have had to stay home to take care of their children. I think its going to be a plus for everybody involved to be out a few days without having to be around everybody. We'll get back to school next week and hopefully everybody will be a lot healthier," said Willoughby
With schools being closed Thursday and Friday, DeKalb County will have used three of its allotted ten days for inclement weather or other reasons.
