Jefferson Parish public schools to make up lost days

HARVEY, LA (WVUE) -

Students in the Jefferson Parish Public School System will now attend a full day of school on Wednesday, Jan. 24 in an effort to make up some of the time missed due to the freeze. 

Jan. 24 was an early release day, which is when students are dismissed two and a half hours early. The Jefferson Parish School Board voted to change that day to a full school day for all schools and all organizational levels in order to recover missed time.

JPPSS officials will recommend additional adjustments for the rest of the school year at the February board meeting. That meeting is currently scheduled for Feb. 7 at 6 p.m. at the JPPSS Administration Building at 501 Manhattan Blvd. in Harvey.
