To the parents and guardians of Red River Parish School Students, the Town of Coushatta has informed us that there is a major leak and one of the city’s water pumps that feeds our schools, and our town is down at this time. The low pressure has caused a boil advisory for the Town of Coushatta. Please make sure you follow the complete boil advisory until it has been rescinded by the water system.
The schools have been preparing for this and purchased plenty of drinking water for our students in case of a boil advisory, however with one pump down it has caused extremely low/no pressure in our school restroom facilities. At this time, we have no option but to close all schools tomorrow, Monday, August 21, 2023.
We are monitoring the situation closely with the Town of Coushatta and will make updates by social media, local news outlets, and our all-call platform as soon as we have more information. As of right now all schools do plan to reopen as soon as possible as we are exploring alternative options for our restroom facilities. All schools closed tomorrow, Monday, August 21, 2023.
