After being closed already two days this week, the Johnson County School system will remain closed the rest of the week due to the flu and illness.
In a Facebook post on Wednesday afternoon the system posted, “Johnson County Schools will be closed tomorrow, February 21 and Friday, February 22 due to continued widespread illness among our students and employees. In making this decision we have consulted with our local health care professionals. The number of patients being seen has not diminished and we feel that returning to school this week could extend this wave of flu and other illnesses.
We have continued and will continue to disinfect our schools, and we commend our custodial employees for all of their hard work. We hope that all of you who are sick feel better soon, and that the rest of you remain healthy.
We look forward to seeing you soon!”
