re: Thoughts on what is taught in Louisiana Public Schools Re: World Religions - jwall3

re: Winter Storm School Closures Tuesday January 16th - jwall3
Any word on closures for Thursday. Come on people—don’t take all day to make a decision. These people have to know what to do with their kids! I imagine there are more than a few people who are ready for the state run daycares called school to reopen to free themselves of their little angels ;)...
