CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – Hamilton County Schools will be open Friday.
People have been sharing a story from this time last year when schools were closed because of the number of people out sick.
The school district says they are watching absence numbers closely for students and staff.
They say they are fortunate that, at this point in the year, they have not been hit as hard by the flu bug.
Hamilton County Schools says they have been taking extra precautions to perform extra deep cleaning and sanitizing of schools.
The most recent cleaning was performed during the day schools were out because of the predicted snow for the area.
