Due to the heavy rains overnight and into this morning throughout Acadiana, parents are waking up to questions regarding school for their kids.

The following schools are closed on Tuesday, October 16, 2018:

Delcambre Elementary
Delcambre High School
Vermilion Parish Schools
- students being sent home at 11:00 am
Vermilion Catholic, Mount Carmel, and Maltrait Memorial closing at 11:00 a.m.


We've also been hearing from parents wanting to know about whether their children would be excused should the flooding prevent them from safely getting to school.

There have been several comments on social media from parents stating they have received calls from their kids' respective schools telling them that anyone who misses today would indeed be marked as excused.

As we hear more specific information regarding that along with any other school closures, we'll be sure to update this story.
