After consultation with the Vermilion OEP office and the local weather stations, Vermilion Parish Schools and Central Office will be closed on Wednesday, December 14th. Forecast for 4-6 inches of rain and possibly flash floods along with wind gust of 50-70 mph have been projected. The Lake Charles Weather Service is also calling for a possibility of this being severe in the early morning hours when buses would be on the road. While there is no exact science to figuring this out, we will tend to side with the experts and put the safety of our students and employees first. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
