Two Acadia Parish schools are closed today because of utilities problems at those campuses.
Mire Elementary is closed today because of a downed power line. According to Acadia Parish School Board officials, power at the school will not be restored for approximately three hours, leading them to cancel classes at the school today.
Branch Elementary will be shut down today because of issues with the sewer and water lines running to campus.
if students are already at school, officials will tried to send them home on a bus. If a bus is not available, parents will be notified so they can pick their children up from school.
Only Mire Elementary is closed today. All other public school in Acadia Parish and other parishes are open.
