Flu outbreak forces closure of Tyler County schools

MIDDLEBOURNE, W.Va. — There will be no school in Tyler County Monday and Tuesday because of a flu outbreak. The decision was made after nearly 30 percent of the system’s students missed school last week for the flu and other ailments.

The time off this week will flow right into Tyler County’s Christmas break. Classes won’t resume until Jan. 5. All extracurricular activities have been postponed until Dec. 29.

The extended break actually began last Friday when schools were closed for the day because of the outbreak. Monday was supposed to be a regular day in the Tyler County school system, while Tuesday was a scheduled half-day.
