Below is a statement from EBR Parish School System regarding classes being canceled on Friday, Feb. 4:
"Due to the possibility of inclement winter weather in the Baton Rouge area overnight and into the morning hours, all schools and administrative offices in the East Baton Rouge Parish School System will be closed Friday, February 4. The School System is not closing early today. The regular school hours will be observed today.
The decision was made after a conference call with the East Baton Rouge Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness earlier this morning.
"The forecast is consistent with what was predicted yesterday," said Superintendent John Dilworth. "When making decisions about school closures, we always consider the safety and well-being of our students and staff."
In addition, all after-school programs are canceled. However, the School Board’s Committee of the Whole meeting scheduled for this evening at 5 p.m. will take place as scheduled."
