Jeff Davis Parish Schools to Close Wednesday, May 19, 2021

Jeff Davis Parish Schools to close Wednesday, May 19, 2021.

Posted: May 18, 2021 5:32 PM

According to the Jefferson Davis Parish School Boards website, there will be no school on Wednesday, May 19, 2021.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, May 19 there will be no school scheduled for students in Jefferson Davis Parish. More than 60 percent of our bus routes are impassable, and the National Weather Service is predicting possibly another 5 to 10 inches of rain tonight into tomorrow morning. This catastrophic accumulation of rain creates situations too dangerous to transport our students. All graduations, graduation practices, and academic endeavors will continue, but any athletic practice for tomorrow, Wednesday, May 19th is canceled.

All school personnel that can safely travel to their work locations are expected to be at work tomorrow Wednesday, May 19th. Teachers will utilize Google classroom to engage their students during this time.
