The Lafayette Parish Public School System now has two call centers to help parents when it comes to transporation and general questions as school is getting started next week.

If you have questions about your child's transportation, you can call 521-RIDE from today through the 21st of August between the hours of 7:30 to 4:30 on weekdays.

If you have just general questions about schools, you can call 291-HELP, and that line will be staffed by retired teachers working to answer your calls.

This line will be open from August 6th through the 18th.  The hours for this line are as follows:

  • August 6, 7:30-3:30
