BATON ROUGE - The school year at Brusly High in West Baton Rouge Parish will be noticeably different.

Sylvianne Lozada, a foreign language teacher there, disappeared one month ago today. Her family last heard from her on June 5, and her husband and daughter left the country a few days later.

When students picked up their schedules, Lozada's class had "Staff" listed next to the instructor's name. The school waited as long as they could, but recently hired a different teacher to fill her position.

"I know she's going to do a great job but she'll definitely be in a unique situation herself," said Brusly Principal Walt Lemoine. "At this point we were just still holding out hope."

Some teachers and staff at the school held a prayer vigil a few days ago, and a larger candlelight vigil is planned for Monday at 7 p.m. in the Brusly High School gym.
