Alliance St. Agnes Academy closes early due to illness

St. Agnes Academy in Alliance is closing for the Christmas holiday (today)Thursday early due to illness. A school official says they are following the recommendation of Dr. David Isom, who recommended the early closure due to the spread of influenza in town.

Twelve of the 137 students at the elementary school were sick Thursday and the official, who did not want to be identified, said a number of staff members including the principal have been sick.

Alliance public schools will still break for the holiday after students go to school Friday.
