Flu season is here and it's hitting the Ark-La-Tex hard with of course schools being one of the largest hotbeds for spreading it. Rates of students and teachers calling out sick have caused a lot of area schools and even entire districts to close their doors. The schools do this not only to keep everyone home to stop the spread of the illness but it also gives them a chance to deep clean the schools.

We're keeping you updated with all the latest in school closings...

If you or your children have a fever, please call your doctor and don't go to school or work for at least 24 hours after the fever breaks!
