School Closures In Lafayette
UPDATE: Westside Elementary, L. Leo Judice Elementary School, Ridge Elementary and Charles Burke Elementary are closing for today. Scott Middle and Judice Middle are closing school at 1:00 p.m.
Carencro Heights is in the process of dismissing students; Carencro Middle will dismiss at 12:30. Duson Elementary and Ossun Elementary have already dismissed for the day because of flooding.
ORIGINAL: There is still standing water and flooding issues at Duson Elementary so the Lafayette Parish School System will dismiss students early.
There are major plumbing issues going on at Duson Elementary that could be hazardous for students, so they will be dismissed early from Duson Elementary.
School System Spokesperson Angela Morrison says buses will bring the students home.
Staff will remain at the school until all students have been picked up.
Ossun Elementary School is also dismissing early because of flooding in the area.
Morrison said buses will be bringing students home, but because of high water, they may not be able to drop kids off at their normal stops. If that happens, those students will be brought to Live Oak Elementary School at the corner of Butcher Switch and University Ave.
