St. Landry Parish public schools will open on Sept. 8 as the school system adjusts to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The opening date was approved by a unanimous vote during a special School Board meeting Monday.
Schools originally were scheduled to open on Aug. 12.
In July, the Board voted unanimously to open school virtually on Aug. 20 to shield students and employees from the virus surging in the state.
Monday’s meeting was held over Zoom with a maximum audience of 300. About 40 minutes of the three hour meeting included a reading of comments from the public.
