Classes to move after flooding damages Baker High School
BAKER –School officials said Baker High School may be closed for the first semester after the school was flooded earlier this week.
A spokesperson for Baker Schools, Ed Pratt, said the City of Baker schools will reopen Monday, but Baker High School will remain closed.
Superintendent Herman Brister said the school took on several inches of water during the historic flooding across south Louisiana this weekend.
Brister said Baker High Students will be shifted to Baker Middle School. Classes at Baker Middle School will be moved to Bakerfield Elementary.
Both Bakerfield and Baker Heights elementary schools will attend classes at Baker Heights.
Brister said “there is a slight chance” that Baker High could be reopened by Thanksgiving, but the start of the second semester in January is probably the best option.
The Baker School System will be sending information to parents and will be adjusting to help families who may be in shelters.
Parents seeking FEMA aid may visit the system office at 14750 Plank Road from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
