Lafayette Parish Schools Open Thursday, August 31

Lafayette Parish public schools and offices will be open on Thursday, August 31. The Lafayette Parish School System stands ready to take in any students displaced by Tropical Storm Harvey. Students displaced by flooding qualify for homeless status if they are sharing housing with other persons, including those who are doubled-up with family members or are living in shelters, motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to lack of adequate accommodations. These students will be enrolled immediately and provided with school uniforms. The school system will make every effort to provide services for students with special needs regardless of whether student records, such as IEPs, are available. Parents who wish to enroll their children should contact Dr. Amy Fontenot at 337-521- 7251 or
