School has been called off tomorrow for all Hamilton County students because of illness.

Hamilton County School System spokeswoman Amy Katcher said there is a variety of bugs going around.

“We’ve heard reports of all of the usual wintertime illnesses, but I believe the flu has been the main culprit,” she also said.


Bradley County schools, Cleveland city schools and Marion County schools have all been out this week because of illness.
