Due to potential impacts from Hurricane Delta and out of an abundance of caution, St. Charles Parish Public School officials announced that all school buildings and the School Board Office will be closed on Friday, October 9.

Students and employees should not physically report to their school or work site on Friday, October 9.

Although buildings will be closed, learning will continue for all pre-k through 12th grade students as teachers will provide remote learning activities. Officials said completion of these remote lessons and activities is required and will be used to document attendance.

“Teachers have prepared for this scenario of remote learning and have equipped students accordingly,” a press release said. “Please follow guidance provided by your child’s teacher(s) which may include specific time-sensitive (asynchronous) lessons, written assignments or activities outlined in Google Classroom. Further guidance will be provided by each school.”

All eLearning elementary school students will continue to complete asynchronous assignments provided by their eLearning teachers.
