No school for students today; post office also closed

Russell County Schools are not in session today but the day does serve as a Professional Development Day for local educators. Students will return to class from Fall Break tomorrow, Tuesday, October 11th.

Today also serves as Columbus Day, and now Indigenous People’s Day after a proclamation was signed last year. The federal holiday is always celebrated the second Monday of October.

Per the holiday, the United States Postal Service will be closed and will not deliver mail or packages today.
