School is set to start in just a few weeks but that has parents and teachers a little nervous these days. Since we are seeing a rise in the number of positive cases of covid in the State of Louisiana, many are wondering if the school year will really start on time. 

This afternoon Lafayette Parish School System announced that they plan to start school on time this year on August 12, 2021, however, they plan to do A-Day and B-Day schedules for the first two days.
