Perry Co. schools add Saturdays to calendar


PERRY COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – Perry County students will have to go to school on Saturdays to make up for weeks of cancelled classes due to water outages in the county.

The city says extreme temperatures caused water line breaks that led to the outages and then high demand led to a water shortage.
