No school for Byrd students the day after state football championship game

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La. (KTBS) -

Classes for C. E. Byrd have been canceled for Friday, December 13 because of the 8:30 p.m. state football championship on Thursday, December 12.

School officials sent the following letter to parents:

"Due to our participation in the State Championship Football Game in the Mercedez Benz Superdome on the night of December 12, 2013, Superintendent Goree has decided that C. E. Byrd High School will not have school on Friday, December 13, 2013. The cancellation of school on December 13, 2013 for C. E. Byrd was due to a number of reasons including the late timing of the game at 8:30 PM, approximately 1,500 students and 75 staff verified to attend the game, and the late return of students and staff arriving back to Shreveport at an estimated time of 6:00 am.

We are very excited about the opportunity for our students to participate in this event and we hope that you will have the opportunity to join us in New Orleans. Classes will resume on Monday, December 16th. This will be a "B" day for students.

All other events such as practices and games for other sports, play practices, etc., will be determined by the respective coach or sponsor."
