Overton County schools to close due to illness

Posted: Updated:

Widespread illness has forced Overton County officials to close schools Thursday and Friday.

A school spokesperson says attendance numbers at the district's schools are down due to a variety of illnesses, so officials decided to keep students home to get well.

Last week, officials in Stewart County closed their schools when up to 15 percent of the county's students got sick with a stomach bug.
