South Louisiana Community College classes will be canceled for a second, consecutive day in the wake of Hurricane Delta.

SLCC spokeswoman Christine Payton said students at campuses in Acadiana, St. Landry and Vermillion were dealing with widespread power issues Monday that threatened to carry over into Tuesday.

“While all campuses will be closed, essential services such as security, maintenance and custodial must report to their respective campuses, unless otherwise directed by their departmental supervisor,” SLCC said in an issued statement. “Various departmental personnel throughout the college may need to report to their respective campus due to workload demands and priority deadlines. Such employees would only report as directed by their department supervisor with clearance from the respective vice chancellor.

“Follow the college’s website, its official social media accounts, and check your college email for updates,” the campus advised faculty, students and staff.

Payton said SLCC has not altered its calendar this semester and has built-in time in which to make up missed days.

Entergy said it had 4,323 outages in Vermilion; 7,050 in St. Landry; and 6,402 outages in Acadia on Monday at midmorning.

In addition, the Acadia Parish courthouse will be closed for court business on Tuesday and Wednesday and is expected to reopen on Thursday, according to an order signed by Marilyn Castle, chief judge for the 15th Judicial District.

Court operations, including the clerk of court offices in the Lafayette and Vermilion Parish courthouses will reopen at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
