All Lafayette Parish public school students will report to school one hour later than usual on Tuesday. School officials are concerned about it being dark and water being on the roadways while the buses are running. If your child rides a bus, they'll need to get to their stop one hour later. As a result, Lafayette Parish public schools will let out one hour later at the end of the day. As for those Carencro-based public schools that are closed Tuesday, custodians and administrators should still report to their buildings, if it is safe, to check the facility. Those closed public schools include Carencro Heights, Carencro Middle, Carencro High, Live Oak Elementary and Ossun Elementary.
