Notification from the East Baton Rouge Parish School System:


Due to the storm strengthening overnight and the recent closures of state offices and local institutions, the East Baton Rouge Parish School System will begin early dismissal at 12:30 p.m. for middle and high school students and 1:30 p.m. for elementary students today, 10/28/2020. This morning’s forecast indicates an earlier wind arrival time than previously predicted, which could potentially impact transportation functions. Out of an abundance of caution, all district offices will be closed by 3:00 p.m., the late meal distribution (3:00 – 5:30 p.m.) for virtual students will be canceled, and all after school activities will be canceled/postponed. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to make the best decisions possible under these unpredictable circumstances.


Please stay tuned to local news outlets,, and the EBR Schools Facebook page (@EBRPschools) for more information. As always, the safety of our students and faculty is our top priority.
