Boone County Schools closed due to staffing absences, quarantines

WLWT |

Boone County Schools are closed Friday morning, district officials say. Staffing absences and a surplus of quarantines have forced the district to close Friday. Remote learning is also canceled for the day.

Boone County is one of Northern Kentucky’s ‘red zone’ counties on Gov. Andy Beshear’s COVID-19 advisory system.

The school district announced earlier this week that it was transitioning to more in-person learning, something district leaders acknowledged was a “controversial” decision for students and teachers.
