Ascension Parish Public Schools to remain open despite forecasted severe weather
DONALDSONVILLE - Ascension Parish Public Schools say they’ll remain open Thursday despite a severe weather threat, but officials say they’re continuing to monitor the situation and will post updates online.
A release from school administrators Wednesday afternoon said that officials continue to actively monitor weather forecasts, and they are consulting with emergency officials.
They say local forecasts call for four to seven inches of rain between Thursday and Saturday along with sustained winds of 20 to 30 miles per hour. The area is under a Flash Flood Watch and a Wind Advisory, but officials decided the risk of flooding similar to what was observed in the northern parts of the state isn’t likely.
At this time, no plans are in place to cancel school, but parents and employees that experience flooding that hinders their ability to get to school should contact their respective school office.
