MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Alabama superintendent, Dr. Eric Mackey, says students should be excused from Alabama public schools starting Monday.

Gov. Ivey issued a state of emergency, closing all Alabama public schools for about 2 1/2 weeks; however, this does not come into effect until March 18th.

Therefore, if parents wish to hold their children back from school their absences should be acceptable according to Dr. Mackey.
