The Calcasieu Parish School Board says that all schools and facilities will be closed Friday, February 19 due to pipe leaks, little or no water pressure, and heating issues across the parish.

The school board says they 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 boilers from fully functioning to heat schools. The school board says 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," they said.
