Update on Tropical Storms Marco and Laura

JP Schools Family,

We have been in continuous communication with parish and state officials regarding Tropical Storms Marco and Laura. After our most recent conference call with parish officials, all Jefferson Parish public schools and administration buildings will be closed Monday, August 24 and Tuesday, August 25 due to the anticipated impact of Tropical Storms Marco and Laura. Tropical Storm Marco is expected to affect Jefferson Parish with heavy wind and rain. At this time, the path and impact of Tropical Storm Laura is still uncertain.

All school and district activities and events during this two-day period are cancelled. Any evening activities, including Back-to-School events, are also cancelled and will be rescheduled for a later date. 

We will use our district email and our Student Progress Center messaging system to communicate the latest information directly to our families and employees. Stay tuned to the district’s website ( and our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) for the latest information. 

The safety of our students and employees remains our top responsibility. Please stay safe.
