Lafayette Parish Schools Closed Monday, August 28, 2017

Lafayette Parish public schools will be closed Monday, August 28. The parish received an average of 2 inches of rainfall today with the National Weather Service predicting a possible 3 more inches overnight tonight and another 3 to 5 inches on Monday. In addition, there remains a threat of isolated tornados with these severe rain bands. We expect there to be some localized road closures tomorrow, as there are already a few road closures in the parish. The Vermilion River has risen 3 1⁄2 feet today. For the safety of our students and employees, we are canceling school for Monday. Custodians and essential personnel should remain on standby. We will continue to monitor the storm to assess conditions for Tuesday. As of this time, schools are closed Monday only.
