East Jefferson High School in Metairie will be closed Monday and Tuesday because of “electrical issues,” according to the Jefferson Parish public school system.

Spokeswoman Elizabeth Branley said the problem is a “subsurface issue” and that neither students nor staff should report to the school on Phlox Avenue.

Schools Superintendent Isaac Joseph will meet with the school’s instructional department on Monday to determine whether to add days to the end of the school year in order to make up for the lost instructional time, Branley said.
