Lapalco Bridge Update

Dear Higgins High and Patrick Taylor Academy Family, 

We wanted to provide you with an update about the Lapalco Blvd. Bridge at Bayou Segnette. While the bridge has been open since Hurricane Ida, Jefferson Parish indicated it will be closing again Monday, October 4. Because of this, we will continue with Higgins and Patrick Taylor's current arrival and dismissal times of 8:30 a.m.-3:50 p.m. 

This is a temporary time shift that will ensure our students receive maximum instructional time during the closure. Jefferson Parish indicated that once the bridge closes again and they begin work, they anticipate a completion date of 120 days, weather permitting. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they are made available. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding, and we look forward to welcoming students back this Friday, October 1.
