NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - St. Mary's Academy in New Orleans East will be closed Wednesday because the building is without power.
For FirstLine Schools, Apple Bus Services has re-routed some of the pick-up/drop off locations for students, specifically those located along the Chef Menteur bus route. If a student's original pick-up location is a location that was in the path of the tornado, it will be closed. FirstLine Schools' bus stops that intersect with Chef Menteur Hwy will be re-routed, and buses will be tagged with the school's name on them. The new locations and pick up times are listed below:
For Samuel J. Green, Langston Hughes Academy and Joseph S. Clark:
Crowder & Haynes 6:20am: Bus will stop on the sidewalk side (not the levee side).
Crowder & Morrison 6:30am: Bus will stop on all four corners?.
