Madison Co. Schools Off For Basketball Game

Madison Co. Schools Off For Basketball Game

The entire Madison County School District is off Wednesday for the Madison Central Boy's Basketball Team's Sweet 16 game.
       The entire Madison County School District will have the day off Wednesday for the Madison Central Boy's Basketball Sweet 16 Game.

       District Administrators say they felt attendance would have been so low on Wednesday from parents taking their kids out of school, that they felt it was better just to cancel the day and make it  up  at the end of the school year.

      Many parents in the District say they have no problem with all schools closing, but some say it puts a burden on them to arrange plans to have someone watch their kids, especially for parents who have to work.

     The Madison County School District has canceled school three other times in the past for when one of their high school's reaches the state tournament.

      Other districts across the state have taken similar measures for when their teams reach state, and are in close proximity to where the tournaments are being held.

      Madison Central plays at Noon on Wednesday, March 6th at Rupp Arena.
