Charleston School Superintendent Jim Littleford said that Ashmore Elementary School will be open and classes will be in session Thursday, the 27th.

The Ashmore building was closed Wednesday morning due to a significant number of unexplained illnesses.  The Coles County Health Department conducted an investigation to determine the cause and provided support to Charleston school district staff members in sanitizing and cleaning the school building.

Superintendent Littleford asked that parents ensure that ill students be symptom-free for 24 hours before sending them back to school.
