Guntersville schools join Boaz, Albertville and Marshall County to close due to flu



Guntersville City Schools will join three other nearby schools that close on Monday for a flu outbreak.

Closure was announced on Facebook on Saturday's school district. School officers will close the school on Monday and Tuesday to "provide an opportunity to rehabilitate the school system."

The school on Friday publishes a social media message, warning parents to observe the outbreak of the flu. They also recommend parents keep their children home from school if they have fever of 100 degrees or higher in the last 24 hours, or if they have general feelings of muscle aches, fatigue, discomfort, vomiting or coughing.
