School closed due to illness pic

Joining with other school systems throughout southern Middle Tennessee, Franklin County School System administrators opted to not hold classes Friday due to reports of increased student illness.

A decision was also made to close extended school programs.

However, elementary school athletic games scheduled for Thursday evening were allowed to continue as are Friday's athletic matchups.

All other activities are at the individual schools' discretion as to whether they will be in operation on Friday.

All 250- to 260-day employees are scheduled to work normal hours on Friday.
