Colbert County Schools will dismiss at 12 p.m. Friday to conduct ‘deep cleaning’

TUSCUMBIA, Ala. – Colbert County Schools will close system-wide at 12 p.m. Friday so employees can do a ‘deep cleaning’ to prevent illness.

School administrators say some students and teachers have been sick recently, not more than usual, but they want to do this as a preventive measure to get rid of germs and keep people healthy.

Teachers and staff will do a thorough cleaning of classrooms and buses.
