Calcasieu Parish Schools Closed February 19

Published February 18, 2021

The Calcasieu Parish School Board has announced that all schools and facilities in the parish will be closed again, Friday, February 19, 2021.

From CPSB – All Calcasieu Parish School Board schools and facilities will be closed Friday, February 19. As with yesterday, due to pipe leaks, little or no water pressure, and heating issues across the parish, we are unable to open our buildings to students, faculty, and staff. We will not be able to fully identify and repair pipe leaks until water pressure returns across the district. The lack of water pressure also continues to prevent our boilers from fully functioning to heat our schools. Temporary roofing materials put in place following Hurricane Laura and Hurricane Delta will also have to be repaired due to new leaks caused by ice. We feel this is the best decision for the overall safety of everyone. We will keep our families informed over the weekend as to the status of school next week.

Calcasieu Parish Schools were also closed on February 18, 2021, for similar reasons.
