HUTCHINSON, Kan. — A shortage of substitutes and illness among students has prompted Central Christian School in Hutchinson to have an extended break.
An email from Superintendent Roberto Ibarra told parents, "We share your concerns over the many students missing school due to illness, and others being exposed to the flu while being at school. Our faculty have also been ill and it has been very difficult to find subs who are not battling with the flu or cold themselves."
"Due to this ongoing illness, I am going to close CCS K-12 on Thursday, February 13 and Friday, February 14 and resume classes after President’s Day on Tuesday, February 18."
"Our hope is that families can use this time for rest and recovery over the next 5 days."
