The Lafayette Parish School District has set up a call center to help with anticipated school bus delay problems during the first few weeks of school. Beginning with the 2014-2015 school year dismissal times have changed and will likely affect drop-off times for students.
Each year more than 280 bus drivers transport some 17,000 students during the school year. Now the new school times for the 2014-15 school year are as follows.
Elementary schools will start at 7:55 a.m. and dismiss at 3:10 p.m.
Middle schools will start at 8:35 a.m. and dismiss at 3:50 p.m.
High schools will start at 7:05 a.m. and dismiss at 2:35 p.m.
School District Transportation Director Damon Evans encourages parents to check online for updated route information at lpssonline.com or call the hotline number at (337) 521-RIDE.
