DUGGER, Ind. (AP) - The last full day of classes has come for a small southwestern Indiana high school.

The Northeast Sullivan School Board voted in December to close its two schools in the town of Dugger - Union Junior-Senior High School and Dugger Elementary - in a budget-cutting move. The high school with about 170 students has its final classes Friday. Graduation for seniors will be held Saturday.

Principal Shane Reese tells WTHI-TV (https://bit.ly/1mbwYIw ) the school staff has tried to make the final school year as normal as possible.

The town of fewer than 1,000 people is about 30 miles south of Terre Haute.

The school district’s four other schools will remain open. They include North Central Junior-Senior High School near Farmersburg, which has about 500 students.
