East Baton Rouge Parish Schools, offices closed Wednesday, Jan. 29

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

All East Baton Rouge Parish School System (EBRPSS) schools and offices will be closed Wednesday, January 29 because of anticipated dangerous accumulations of ice and snow on area roadways and sidewalks that are expected to result in hazardous travel conditions.

All school system sponsored activities including Pre-K registration, sports practices, games and other events scheduled for Wednesday are canceled.

"We do not anticipate that it will be safe to have our students and employees traveling to and from school and work tomorrow under these conditions," said EBRPSS Superintendent Dr. Bernard Taylor, Jr. "We feel it is better to err on the side of safety and allow for conditions to improve prior to reopening the school system."

EBRPSS parents have been notified of the school system's closure through automated telephone calls and postings on the district website.
