The Lafayette Parish School System has decided to suspend all activities/practices that take place outdoors due to the extreme heat advisories for the area. 

Students can participate in activities outdoors between 6am and 10am, but after 10am all activities must be brought into an air conditioned environment. If there are no air conditioned facilities available, the activities must be suspended for the day.

This mandate in the parish will stay in effect until the National Weather Service lifts the heat advisory.

We salute the Superintendent of Schools for being proactive and not waiting until something tragic happens in the area to mandate this practice. Its always better to be safe than sorry.

Please remember to take care of yourself and your pets during this heat wave sweeping across the area. Drink Plenty of Water if you're working outdoors!!!!!!
