Caddo & Bossier Schools to close Tuesday & Wednesday

UPDATE: Bossier will be closed Monday as well. The School Board's website says that the governor order closings for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Monday wasn't mentioned in the proclamation, but it gives the school board an 'out' - they won't have to take responsibility for Monday one way or the other!

Caddo & Bossier Parish Schools will be closed on Tuesday and Wednesday due to Hurricane Gustav. Schools in Bienville, DeSoto and Webster Parishes will be closed as well.
Governor Jindal has issued an Executive Order closing schools in 30 parishes on Tuesday and Wednesday.
SECTION 2: As determined by the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, Hurricane Gustav could possibly move into Central and North Louisiana bringing substantial rain and possible flooding.
SECTION 3: The governor is authorized to close schools for emergency purposes to protect public health and safety of the citizens of Louisiana.
SECTION 4: Each Superintendent of Education for each school district in the above-referenced parishes shall order the closure of each educational facility under its direction.
