Staff Report

River Parishes Community College will be closed on Thursday, Feb. 3 in anticipation of severe winter weather conditions.  Faculty, staff and students are asked to please continue to check www.rpcc.edu for updates.

All Ascension Parish Government Offices will continue normal operations Friday, according to parish officials.

Parish President Tommy Martinez said projected weather conditions for Ascension Parish on Friday morning will not warrant any closures at this time and is asking all parish employees to report to their departments as usual.

President Martinez said Department of Public Works will be on stand-by if weather conditions should deteriorate late Thursday night and early Friday morning and that parish employees will be notified of any changes.

Department of Public Works Director Ronnie Fairchild said trucks are loaded with sand and on stand-by.
