Bootheel School Canceling Classes For Rest of Week Due to Outbreak

FEBRUARY 7, 2006 - Posted at 11:32 a.m. CST

 

CAMPBELL, MO - A small southeast Missouri school is canceling classes for the rest of the week due to a high absentee rate among students, apparently caused by a viral outbreak of flu-like symptoms.

Campbell R-2 superintendent Darrel Wilborn told K8 News that 139 of his district's 645 students are out today, for a 21 percent absentee rate.  "We're staying open for the rest of the day, but canceling classes for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday," said Wilborn.  "In fact, we've got kids that are going home from school today."

Wilborn said any basketball games that are already scheduled will be played as planned.
