FRANKLINTON, La. (WVUE) - The Washington Parish public school system announced that classes would be canceled Tuesday (Aug. 29), due to “unforeseen circumstances.”

Employees of the school district told Fox 8 that school bus drivers, cafeteria workers, custodians and other support employees planned to stage a walkout and protest for higher pay outside the school district’s offices starting at 9 a.m.

The cancelation notice posted by the district on social media Monday night warned that “all employees shall report to work at their normal time.”
