Lafayette - After careful consideration and in consultation with local health officials, the Lafayette Parish School System has made the decision to delay the start of school until Tuesday, September 8, 2020. Teachers and staff will still report to school tomorrow, August 5, 2020 to attend professional development training and receive additional details regarding the start of school.
