On Tuesday, March 29th, the district sent out the following statement on social media:
“Based on the latest weather forecasts and guidance from state and local agencies, the East Baton Rouge Parish School System will transition to virtual and remote learning on Wednesday, March 30.
School leaders have been notified to send students home today with their Chromebooks, personalized technology or learning packets. Teachers and staff whose work location is a school site will not report to their respective site but are required to teach virtually. Any administrative staff not serving at a school site will be dismissed at noon Wednesday to ensure they are home safely before the worst of the weather impacts.
The safety and security of our students and staff are our top priority.
Please stay tuned to local news outlets, ebrschools.org and the EBR Schools Facebook page (@EBRPschools) for more information. For additional guidance on school closures and schedules, please refer to our emergency procedures and delayed start guidance available on our website.”
