Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at 4:30 p.m.
Plans are for Ascension Public Schools to resume normal operations on Thursday, Oct. 29, 2020, following Hurricane Zeta moving quickly through Louisiana this evening.
At this time, we believe the weather will be favorable tomorrow for returning back to school. However, please know we will assess our campuses and road conditions after the storm moves through our area. If any adjustments to operations need to occur, we will message that out as quickly as possible.
As always, we encourage you to monitor our website, www.apsb.org, and local media for official decisions.

Due to the expected impacts from Hurricane Zeta beginning sometime tomorrow afternoon and through the evening, Ascension Public Schools will be closed with students learning virtually on Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2020. Schools will communicate to parents specific virtual learning instructions designed to keep students engaged in productive activities.
This adjustment will allow students to receive virtual instruction from the safety of their homes on Wednesday. The Technology Helpdesk will be operating. Students with any technology issues can either visit helpdesk.apsb.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 225-391-7090.
All offices will be closed to the public on Wednesday, and 12-month employees will receive information from their immediate supervisors relative to work responsibilities. Although we expect a normal day on Thursday, a decision about operations will be made tomorrow afternoon.
We recognize that predictions regarding weather events may change. We encourage you to monitor our website, www.apsb.org, and local media should any adjustments to operations need to occur.
