The administrations are worried that roads, bridges and/or overpasses might collect freezing rain and ice, so schools are closed tomorrow.
In the message from the Lafayette Parish School System, they expressed that they want families to know that they do not take making these decisions lightly.
They know that thousands of families are impacted when they make the decision to close the school system.
They say that out of an abundance of caution, closing schools for Friday, December 8 is the best decision.
