CARL JUNCTION, Mo. – The Carl Junction School District announced today they will close their doors for the rest of this week.

The schools in Carl Junction will close Thursday, Jan. 20 & Friday, Jan. 21. The district states these days will not be virtual learning days, nor will they have to be made up.

“We have tried to keep our schools open because we believe that is what is best for students but our student and staff attendance continues to trend downward,” states Tracie Skaggs, Public Relations Director for CJ schools. “Our staff has worked tirelessly to keep this from happening but we believe closing school for the rest of the week is in everyone’s best interest.
