Lafayette Parish School System Closes Schools On Thursday
Due to continuing inclement weather concerns, and in consultation with local officials, the Lafayette Parish School System will keep all schools and offices closed on Thursday, February 18, 2021. Staff continue to assess facilities and report that low water pressure, as well as standing ice in some areas, remain an issue. The Magnet Academies lottery scheduled for tomorrow, February 18, 2021, is postponed. As we continue to monitor conditions and assess facilities, we ask that families refer to the LPSS website and Facebook page for updates regarding school status for Friday, February 19, 2021.
While all schools and offices are closed to the public, the following personnel are to report to work:
• Central office essential personnel
• School administrators
• Custodians – district and school level
Employees unable to safely report to work are to contact their immediate supervisor.
