Update: JCS have decided to close for the rest of the week.
It was only a matter of time before Johnson County would catch up with the rest of the region affected by the recent flu outbreak.
Johnson County School director Mischelle Simcox stated on Monday, “Due to an increased number of cases of flu, strep, and other viruses among our students and
employees Johnson County Schools will be closed on Tuesday, February 19 and Wednesday, February 20, in an effort to stop the spreading. Our custodial employees have been working diligently to disinfect the schools and will continue to do so while we are closed. This will give them a needed opportunity to get ahead of the spreading illnesses. We hope everyone remains safe and healthy, and that those who are ill feel better soon!”
