First day of classes for some students
BATON ROUGE- Some kids in Baton Rouge are heading back to class today. School officially starts on Thursday for students in East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana and Tangipahoa Parish.
Last month, parents in Tangipahoa Parish asked the school board to postpone the first day of classes because of the high temperatures. After discussing it the school board decided it was too late to do anything for this school year, but agreed to consider the heat when scheduling future start dates.
See the list below for other parish's start dates.
Friday, August 7th
Livingston and Saint Helena
