FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOX) – Thursday was supposed to be the first day of school for students in the Ferguson-Florissant School District, but late Wednesday afternoon, the decision was made to cancel school Thursday and Friday.

A brief news release explains the decision was made in response to concerns expressed by many about the continuing unrest in the community.
