Flu Closes Norway-Vulcan & Repub.-Michigamme Schools

Add 2 more Upper Peninsula school systems, and 1 more individual school, to the list closing their classrooms because of flu concern.

The Norway-Vulcan Area Schools are closed until Monday.

The day care, preschool and pre-K programs are also cancelled.

But sporting events will go on as scheduled.

Holy Spirit School is likewise closed.

Republic-Michigamme School students also will have the rest of the week off.

Yesterday, the Hancock schools decided to do the same thing due to sick students there.

The Munising schools and Father Marquette Elementary and Middle Schools in Marquette made that same decision earlier this week.

The Ontonagon Area Schools have been closed since Monday.

But they’ll be open again for class tomorrow morning.
