A Western Kansas school district will close tomorrow because so many students are out with illnesses.
All schools in Wichita County USD 467 will be closed Thursday. Schools were already scheduled to be closed Friday, giving students a four day weekend.
In addition to the ill students, teachers are calling in sick and there aren't enough substitutes to cover all of the classrooms.
Parent-Teachers Conferences scheduled for Thursday evening have been rescheduled for October 27th.
