With Thursday's weather expected to get nasty, St. Thomas More Catholic High School decided to let their students begin their Easter Break one day earlier this year.

In an announcement sent via voicemail and text, STM school officials let parents know that the school will be closed tomorrow. The Easter Break was supposed to begin on Good Friday and last through next week.

But, as KATC Chief Meteorologist Rob Perillo reports, the inclement weather is supposed to hit Acadiana from around 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM on Thursday. That is expected to include a Tornado Watch for most, or all, of our region.

In addition to STM, here are other schools that will be closed on Thursday, courtesy of our news partners at KATC:

  • St. Pius Elementary
  • Lafayette Christian Academy
  • E.J. Sam Accelerated School
  • Covenant Preschool in Lafayette
  • Public schools in Acadia, St. Mary, St. Landry, Iberia, St. Martin, and Vermilion are off this week for Easter / Spring Break holiday.

Evangeline Parish starts their break on Friday, April 18, 2019. Officials say that school will continue as planned for Thursday.
