The Lafayette Parish School System continues to monitor a line of severe thunderstorms sweeping across much of the area today.

In a statement LPSS says:

"All students have been removed from portable buildings and are sheltering in place inside the main buildings," a message sent to parents states. "Students who have not yet reported to school today, should not travel at this time. These absences will be excused. At this time, we have no plans to close school early as roadways are unsafe for travel. We will provide updates as needed."

We can expect more storms throughout the week, so please continue to check back here for all of the latest information.
