ATTICA, Kan. Attica Public Schools (USD 511), a small district in Harper County joins the Peabody-Burns and Kiowa County school districts in canceling classes Friday (Jan. 26) due to widespread illness.

Specifically, the district says it's canceling school Friday "due to an extremely high percentage of illness and confirmed influenza cases."

The district says the day without students will allow for the school to be disinfected "and gives students and their families an opportunity to hopefully stop the spreading of so much illness."

"We encourage you to stay home if you are sick and remember that you are contagious even before a fever sets in," The district says.
