Estill County Schools Close Friday and Monday


From a press release from Estill County School Superintendent:

After monitoring attendance the past few days and several conversations with local health care providers, I have decided that the best course of action for the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is cancel school on Friday, January 24th and Monday, January 27th. All schools will be closed during this time. Only Administration, Custodians and CO Personnel are allowed in the building.

Also, it does not benefit us to call off school if we allow extracurricular activities to continue, so beginning this evening at 6pm and continuing until Monday afternoon at 4:00pm, all games, practices and activities with the exception of the following activities will be canceled.

Thursday, January 23rd – ECHS Boys’ and Girls’ Basketball Team Practice

Saturday, January 25th – ECHS District Governors Cup at Owsley County

Saturday, January 25th – District Honors Band Performance at Bourbon County

Sunday, January 26th – ECHS Boys’ and Girls’ Basketball Team Practice

All gyms and sports facilities will be closed and no one is allowed to use our facilities for any events.

All schools will reopen on Tuesday morning, January 28th, at 8am. I hope our students, their families and our staff take this time to get better.
