Beginning Tuesday, April 6, 2021, LPSS will extend the school day by five minutes for all elementary and middle schools. This is due to weather-related school closures during the year. LPSS wants to ensure that students receive the appropriate amount of instruction necessary to have a successful school year and meet state guidelines requiring 63,720 instructional minutes per academic year. The additional five minutes will be added to the end of the school day. As a result, dismissal and afternoon bus routes will be pushed back five minutes. This extension of the school day does not apply to David Thibodaux STEM Magnet Academy or any of the high schools, as they have additional instructional minutes built into their schedule. Early College Academy families will be notified internally with their revised schedule.
