NPSB School Update from Superintendent Grant Eloi

“The Natchitoches Parish School Board’s thoughts and prayers are with our entire community and state. We are thankful that none of our schools received major damage. As you all know, the vast majority of the parish is without power and will continue to be without power for the foreseeable future. Furthermore, many of our rural roads are not passable by vehicle, let alone by bus. Currently our priority is the safety of our students, staff, parish and residents. The school board had planned for a soft start this week in which students only attended one day of school. We are cancelling the soft start and are currently considering a September 8th full start of school. This date is our target but will be largely dependent upon the changing status of the parish’s power situation. All offices will reopen as soon as power is restored. We know that school is important but the safety of all community members is paramount. This is a time where #TogetherWeCan means more than ever.”
