3 Big Country school districts closed Friday due to flu, other illnesses

At least three Big Country school districts are closed Friday due to the flu and other illnesses.

Haskell CISD Superintendent Bill Alcorn told KTXS the district will be closed Friday because of a high rate of absences of students and teachers. Classes will resume Monday.

Breckenridge ISD and Hermleigh ISD were both closed Thursday and will be Friday for the same reason.

This is the third straight week that multiple Big Country school districts have canceled classes due to a high number of absences.

Last week, six Big Country schools closed due to illness.
