The Ouachita Parish School System, in conjunction with other local agencies, has been assessing road conditions this afternoon.
Although main roads have become clear, secondary roads remain an issue. We are also experiencing water issues on at least six of our campuses.
Based on these issues, we do not have complete confidence that putting our buses, employees and young student drivers on the roads tomorrow morning is the best decision. Our schools will remain closed on Thursday to on-campus instruction.
Any further updates will be shared through our social media platforms (Facebook and Instagram @OuachitaParishSchools).
Thank you to our Ouachita Parish Weather Team and local agencies for navigating some of the roads that remain dangerous in our parish so they could provide the most extensive report that ultimately led to our decision to remain closed on Thursday.
