The Orleans Parish School Board (OPSB) has been in close communication with the city and the national weather service. The state has just declared a state of emergency and the city will likely follow suit. Public schools in St. Tammany, Jefferson and St. Bernard are all closing for Tuesday. The forecast now says that New Orleans may be experiencing high winds (39+ mph) by Tuesday afternoon. Therefore, out of an abundance of caution, OPSB mandates that schools be CLOSED on Tuesday.
Both campuses of Morris Jeff Community School are CLOSED tomorrow, Tuesday, September 4.
Professional Development for our faculty and staff has been cancelled. Stay safe and be cautious.
