Livingston Parish School Board....

is working on a date to reopen Livingston Parish Schools. To help them in this process they are trying to locate where the parishes students are due to the displacement of so many residents due to the flooding. They are  currently asking all parents/guardians of all Livingston Parish students to take a moment to fill out a survey. The link to the survey is HERE
