Cold weather causes school closures

There are several school closures in the metro area today because of the cold weather.

McDonogh #32 Literacy School, Eleanor McMain Secondary School, the Lyce'e Francais Claiborne Campus, all in New Orleans, will not have classes because of problems with the heating systems.

Ella Dolhonde Elementary School in Metairie has cancelled classes, but the building will remain open.

In Tangipahoa Parish, Loranger Elementary, Loranger Middle and Loranger High School will be closed as well.

Tangipahoa Parish school system officials will cancel classes at Hammond Eastside Elementary and Hammond High Magnet Schools Tuesday due to an inadequate power supply at those two sites east of Hammond.
