Calendar Change for November 6

Professional Development Day Slated
Posted on 10/17/2018
In the official Board Meeting on October 16, Ouachita Parish School Board voted to enact an employee inservice day for Tuesday, November 6, 2018. Superintendent Don Coker recommended the calendar change due to the fact that many Ouachita Parish campuses are voting precincts for the upcoming elections.

“Having general public accessing school campuses during an active school day could potentially create a confusing situation for school administrators and students,” said Coker. “Safety is our number one priority, and we feel this is the safest and most logical answer to alleviate any issues that might arise.”

Students will not attend school on Tuesday, November 6, giving faculties and staff time to complete mandatory trainings and professional development. Students will be notified by their schools on any continuance or cancellation of extra-curricular activities scheduled. Classes will resume Wednesday, November 7 as scheduled.
