Overton County schools to close because of illness

Posted: Updated:

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

A school spokesperson says attendance numbers at the district's schools are down because of a variety of illnesses, including flu, pneumonia, strep and a stomach bug, so officials decided to keep students home to get well.

Last month, Overton schools closed for several days when a high number of students and staff reported feeling ill.
