End-of-Year Bus Incident
Staff members of the Lafayette Parish School System’s Central Office are investigating reports that a group of teachers at a middle school were dismissed early on May 25, 2016, to celebrate the end of the school year. Witnesses reported that the teachers were chauffeured to local restaurants aboard a school bus owned by a contract driver. May 25 was the final work day for teachers to complete reports and wrap up paperwork. No students were in attendance that day. This is a personnel matter and a recommendation will be made to the superintendent regarding disciplinary action.
