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.

While we remain confident in our ability to provide a safe and effective learning environment for ourstudents, we have a responsibility to ensure that we take proper measures that support our communityas a whole. We believe this decision is in the best interest of all residents of Lafayette parish.
