The dreaded flu is hitting Webster County Schools again.

School officials say they will be closing all schools in Webster County for the rest of the week.

Last week, custodians deep cleaned and scrubbed all of the schools.

Webster County closed all of its schools last Friday due to high illnesses.

They had hoped closing for a day and disinfecting all of the schools would helps its absentee rates. But officials determined schools need to close for two more days this week.
