Alleghany Highlands Public Schools’ Callaghan Elementary School (WSLS) Due to the high number of absentee students, an elementary school in the Highlands will be closed for the remainder of this week. Due to a significant number of likely flu cases, Callaghan Elementary will be closed on Thursday, November 3, and Friday, November 4, Alleghany Highlands Public Schools said on Wednesday evening.

The closure, according to leaders, is being done out of an abundance of caution after consulting with VDH employees. According to information provided to us, deep cleaning at all other AHPS campuses began earlier this week.

Just a few days prior, 25% of the students at Lord Botetourt High School were absent due to flu-related illness. As we previously reported, there has been a minor increase in absences due to illness at Salem’s Andrew Lewis Middle School. Early in October, medical professionals issued a stern flu season warning.
