West Hardin CCISD closing schools for rest of week due to flu

The West Hardin County Consolidated Independent School District has closed its schools for the remainder of this week due to rising incidents of flu among staff and students. Below is a message released by the CCISD:
Hello Oiler Community,
We continue to have a significant rise in the number of confirmed flu cases with our students and staff.  In the best interest of the health, safety and well being our students and staff, we are closing school for the remainder of the week. This time should allow the flu to run its course in those already affected (both late and early stages), remove the time in confined spaces at school, thus reducing the risk of exposure for those not currently infected and allow us to complete another deep cleaning this weekend.
You can help us beat the flu!  Please see that your student is fever free, without fever reducing medication, for 24 hours before allowing them to return to school.
School will resume as regularly scheduled on Monday, March 25th.  Thank you and be safe.
