Some changes have been approved to the 2018-19 Lafayette Parish public school calendar.
Because of a special election, students will not report to school on Tuesday, Nov. 6. Most schools serve as polling places. On this day, administrators, faculty and staff will report to work for professional development activities.
This means that students will now attend a regular, full day of school on Wednesday, Nov. 14. This was originally scheduled to be a half-day for students.
The net effect is that students will miss a half-day of instruction. Staff has built in extra instructional minutes to account for unforeseen events, and the instruction time lost on Nov. 6 will be covered by the extra minutes.
