The St. Martin Parish School Board has voted to delay the start of school to September 8.

Members approved the delay in a special meeting called for Friday afternoon.

On the table were three options - delaying the start to September 8, delaying the start to August 31, or continuing with a start date of August 17 as previously approved. Option 1 was approved; students will start classes on September 8 and employees will report to work on August 25.

Also on the agenda was a motion to allow school employees to wear scrubs during the pandemic. That item did not pass, so staff will be required to follow the regular district approved dress code.

You can watch the full special meeting below.
