Vermilion Parish School Superintendent Jerome Puyau says that some schools in the parish will have an early dismissal due to weather conditions.

Puyau says that schools will have staggered dismissal times. The reason is that several schools use the same buses for transportation.

The following is a list of scheduled closure times:

At 12:00 pm

  • Kaplan Elementary
  • Indian Bayou Elementary
  • Geuydan High School
  • Jessie Owens Elementary

At 12:30 pm

  • Rene Rost
  • Kaplan High School

At 1:00 pm

  • Forked Island Elementary

Puyau says that parents can pick up their children from school before dismissal but several schools are currently testing. The dismissal times ensure that all testing is complete for the day.

The closure at Kaplan Elementary is due to sewage and drainage issues.
