Rapides Parish Students Losing Upcoming Mardi Gras Break

Those snow days now mean Rapides Parish students will have to give up their Mardi Gras break.  They’ll also add 20 minutes to each school day between February 24th through April 8th.

The Rapides parish school board voted to make up those lost 7 days, as required by the state department of education, using this plan.  It’s designed to make up for extra cancellations not built into the regular calendar.
