Hurricane Delta Closure and Distance Learning Scheduled

Posted by District on 10/7/2020 11:00:00 AM

From Dr. Bagwell:

The approach of Hurricane Delta as a major hurricane will necessitate the closure of all schools and offices of the St. Mary Parish School Board on Thursday, October 8. Students will be scheduled for distance learning in lieu of attending school on campus October 8, which will foster a continuation of instructional activities while families make preparations for the impending hurricane. 

All offices and schools of the St. Mary Parish School Board will be closed on Thursday, October 8, and schools and offices will remain closed for the previously scheduled “fall break” on Friday and Monday. Students and staff will return to school on Tuesday, October 13, 2020.

Additionally, the St. Mary Parish School Board meeting will be cancelled on Thursday, October 8, and rescheduled to Thursday, October 15, at 5:00 PM in the Evans Medine Board Room. An updated board agenda will be publicized prior to the meeting.

Parents should monitor school and district websites for ongoing coverage of the response to Hurricane Delta as events transpire. The safety and security of students and staff is of deepest concern, and we ask that all citizens take every precaution in preparing for this storm.
