Parish schools closed ahead of Tropical Storm Sally

Dr. Ken Oertling, Superintendent of St. Charles Parish Public Schools, announced cancellation of all parish public schools for Monday through Wednesday of this week in preparation of Tropical Storm Sally.

“After consulting with the parish’s Emergency Operations Center and out of an abundance of caution, all St. Charles Parish Public Schools (including both in-person and virtual/eLearning) and the School Board Office will be closed Monday, September 14 through Wednesday, September 16, 2020, due to the impending impact from Tropical Storm Sally,” the post stated. “All school and district activities and events are cancelled. A reopening date will be communicated once determined as well as any potential make-up dates if needed.”

Oertling said the school district would continue to use the Blackboard Connect messaging system to communicate the latest information directly to parents/guardians and employees.

“Once again, thank you for your continued support, patience, and understanding,” he said. “Thank you, and stay safe.”
