Five Day Weekend?

By Emily Evans


Rumor has it Knox County Schools might be out the rest of the week (Wednesday-Friday). Teachers and students alike have been hit with illness all throughout the district. Flu and Strep have been hitting the district hard and affecting teachers the most. Around 180-200 teachers have been out consistently since Friday, January the 24th, without substitutes to fill the spots. That is the main concern with sickness, the inability of filling teacher positions with subs. So say a prayer because speaking as a student; We want and we NEED these days off.
