As a result of heavy rains and flooding in the Carencro area, the following schools will be closed Monday:

  • Carencro Heights Elementary
  • Live Oak Elementary
  • Carencro Middle Carencro High
  • Ossun Elementary

Lafayette Parish School System spokesman Randy Bernard reported all other Lafayette Parish public schools will be open.

We are closing these schools because many roads in the Carencro area are under water," Bernard said via press release.  "There are some bus drivers who live in the Carencro area who cannot get out of their driveways. They may drive for schools that are open tomorrow.

If your student’s bus does not make its route, your child will be excused for the day if you cannot drive your child to school.

All employees are to report to work if possible, including the employees at the schools that are closed.
