KENTUCKY — Multiple school districts across the state will be closed Friday because of illness, including the flu. Some even closed Thursday and will be closed Monday.

"Like with inclement weather days, the decision to close a district due to widespread illness is made by the superintendent and does not require a board vote," said Kentucky School Boards Association spokesperson Josh Shoulta. "The ability for a district to cancel school due to widespread illness, commonly referred to as taking ‘flu days’, has been used as needed by KY public schools for decades."

For Monday, some districts are using ​​Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) days to let students work from home. School is out statewide Tuesday for the election.

Here's a list of districts that will be closed Friday:

This list will be updated if more closures are announced.
