The East Baton Rouge Parish School System will consider a transition to remote learning on days when schools have to close due to inclement weather for the remainder of the 2021-2022 school year. These are days when the district would otherwise determine that a system closure would be needed for safety reasons. This decision will be made on a case-by-case basis.
When inclement weather is forecasted, EBR leadership will monitor the forecast and notify families if there is a possibility of a transition to remote learning, a delayed schedule or early dismissal. Students will be asked to make sure they bring home Chromebooks, chargers and other instructional materials. Staff will also be asked to be prepared for remote learning and instruction lessons.
In the event there is a delayed opening, early dismissal or closure,
please refer to the link for the Remote Learning Plan or go to your child’s school website for the appropriate remote contingency schedule.
