Livingston Parish Public Schools opening later on Thursday


LIVINGSTON PARISH, La. (BRPROUD) – Livingston Parish Public Schools are starting one hour late on Thursday.

This is being done so that leaders in the parish can determine if Hurricane Zeta damaged any of the campuses.

Livingston Parish Public Schools released this statement below with details about the schedule change:

Livingston Parish Public Schools will delay the start of school tomorrow (Thursday, Oct. 29) by one hour, at all schools, to allow school leaders an opportunity to fully assess any possible damages to campuses, as well as to allow bus pick-up times for students to occur during more daylight.

“We are making this decision out an abundance of precaution for the safety of our children and employees,” Superintendent Joe Murphy said. He noted that campus leaders and central office staff will begin assessing campuses as early as 5 a.m. tomorrow to determine if any wind or rain damage from Tropical Storm Zeta occurs overnight, and if any of those possible damages could pose a threat to the safety of students, faculty or staff.

Murphy noted that normal bus routes will run, but at a one-hour delayed timing. He said all schools will dismiss at their regular times.
