OPELOUSAS, La. - St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz started a program to assist working families whose children attend school virtually.

Today, KATC caught up with one mother on how it is working out so far. Watch tonight at 6.

The voluntary program, called Children and Parents Education Relief System (CAPERS), allows St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office employees with school age children in grades K-9 to bring their children to the sheriff's office. Parents are permitted to supervise and assist their children with their assignments while also doing their job at the sheriff's office. Guidroz emphasized that no one will neglect their primary duties as a public employee while they're at work from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

The children have access to "recess" (play time) at the sheriff's office, and have a place for lunch breaks. While lunches aren't provided by the sheriff's office, they work with the local school board with the delivery of school lunches.

Sheriff Guidroz proves internet access at no additional cost to parents, school board, or his department.
