Weather Update for 8/27/21

Posted on Friday / August 27

Based on current weather forecasts and storm tracking updates from state and local agencies, Democracy Prep will be closed on Monday, August 30th. There will be no in-person or virtual teaching so that our families and staff can concentrate on their safety during the storm.

We will monitor the situation and impact that the storm has on our community before making a determination about whether we will be able to safely open back up on Tuesday. 

Please stay tuned to local news outlets, dpbr.democracyprep.org and the DPBR Facebook Page (@DPBatonRouge) for more information. As always, the safety of our students and faculty is our top priority.
