REFORM, Ala. (WTVA) - Pickens County students returned to school Monday after their school closed last week to prevent the spread of the flu.
Principals at Reform Elementary and at Pickens County High School reported an abnormally high amount of students who did not attend school last Wednesday because of flu like symptoms.
As a result, students were excused from school Thursday and Friday.
Pickens County High School Principal Craig Perrigin said a crew cleaned the school while the students were away.
He said 32 students missed school Monday.
Dr. John Brandon who works at the Pickens County Schools Smart Clinics says he is seeing a lot of flu in the region.
