Some area schools will be closing on Friday, April 13, 2018, as teachers plan to attend a rally in Frankfort. Floyd County Superintendent Steve Trimble said he and the board team appreciate the understanding of parents and students and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. He added that they hope this will be the last day school will be canceled for the rest of the year. Other area schools currently planning to close on Friday are Letcher County and Pike County. A decision will be made later on more school closings.
