LSU, S. LA Schools Cancelled for Rain Threat

South Louisiana schools, LSU announce Tuesday closures


On Monday, West Baton Rouge Parish, East Baton Rouge Parish, East Baton Rouge Head Start, Zachary, Central, East/West Feliciana, St. Helena, Pointe Coupee, Iberville, Livingston, Ascension, Tangipahoa, St. James and Baker public schools and Diocese of Baton Rouge Catholic, Parkview Baptist, Dunham School, Louisiana Key Academy, Democracy Prep Baton Rouge and LSU Lab private schools announced classes are canceled Tuesday.

LSU and Baton Rouge Community College also announced canceled classes starting Tuesday at noon.

In the greater New Orleans area St. Tammany and Washington parishes announced schools are closed Tuesday. Northlake Christian, Archbishop Hannan and Pope John Paul High School on the northshore will also close Tuesday.

The forecast calls for an enhanced risk for severe weather across most of Louisiana with some areas in Washington, Tangipahoa and St. Helena parishes facing a greater risk.

On Monday afternoon, West Baton Rouge Parish Schools Superintendent Wesley Watts announced that classes would be cancelled because the worst of the storms would be happening just when students would be released from school.

“I don’t want kids on the road,” Watts said.

    If I called my bosses and said I was going to close the shop for the chance of inclement weather, I’d be out the door.
    At the root, their decision to close was based upon a fear of a personal injury suit. When I think about all the ways society has changed over the past 45 years I’ve been uglying up Lincoln Parish, I think the growth of personal injury lawsuits as an industry is among the most negative. Seems like I’ve been promised tort reform by various parties since the early nineties.
