Two Stanly County schools will be closed for two days due to a high rate of respiratory illnesses.

Stanly County Schools posted the following on its Facebook page Tuesday afternoon:

“Aquadale Elementary and South Stanly Middle School are currently experiencing high incidences of respiratory illnesses. We have collaborated with local and state health officials and at this time we will be closing these schools for the next 2 days to mitigate the spread of the illness and will move to remote learning.

“During this time schools and buses will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. These protocols are being put into place in conjunction with guidance from the State Epidemiologist.

“We understand the impact this will have on students, staff, and families and appreciate your support and understanding as we put the health and safety of our students and staff as our top priority. We look forward to the students returning to school on November 1st.”
