Winn Parish and all of North Central Louisiana experienced extreme winter weather conditions last week. Very low temperatures and heavy snow and ice have resulted in destructive conditions in many school buildings that could jeopardize the safety of students and staff. Maintenance crews are working diligently to restore safe school conditions. Restoring safe school environments is of profound importance to the Winn Parish School Board. Damage such as broken water lines and mains, compromised electrical systems, and extensive roof damage were caused by unprecedented winter weather.
Consequently, all Winn Parish schools will be closed for face-to-face instruction Monday and Tuesday, February 22-23, 2021. Virtual instruction will be utilized during this time for all students. Schools will also create paper packets as needed for students without electricity or internet. Principals and teachers are prepared to work with parents and students to facilitate any inconveniences this plan may create. Please contact your school if you have any questions.
Thank you to the citizens of Winn Parish for your support of education for our children.
Superintendent of Winn Parish Schools
