POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) - Two more schools in Southeast Missouri will be closed on Friday because of a flu outbreak.
Neelyville R-IV and Sacred Heart Catholic School in Poplar Bluff will be closed on Feb. 10.
According to Principal Monique Gribbins at Sacred Heart, a quarter of the students in the district were out sick with the flu.
So, crews are disinfecting the building.
Gribbins said hopefully taking a few days off will allow students and faculty to get well.
Neelyville R-IV has been closed since Wednesday. School leaders opted to postpone Parent Teacher Conferences until Feb. 16.
