Officials with Livingston Parish Public Schools announced the parking lots at Grey’s Creek Elementary, Juban Parc Elementary and Juban Parc Junior High have been opened to allow residents in the South Denham Springs area to relocate their vehicles to these “high-ground” areas.

Grey’s Creek Elementary is located at the intersection of Hwy 1033 and Hwy 16, south of Denham Springs; and the two Juban Parc schools are located on Brown Road, across the street from one another, southeast of Denham Springs.
