New School Zone Hours
AM: 7:00 am – 9:00 am
PM: 2:24 pm – 4:45 pm
At its June 28th meeting, the City Council passed an ordinance to lengthen the hours
in school zones. Because school hours vary so much at the City’s numerous schools,
the Council agreed to requests from the Orleans Parish School Board and the Recovery
School District to broaden the hours reflecting when students are actually en route
to and from school.
With school starting again in just a few weeks, the Administration urged the Council
to move quickly so that new signs could be made and installed. The longer school
zone hours that will go into effect on the first day of this school year (in early
August, depending on the individual school) will be 7:00 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 2:45
p.m. to 4:45 p.m.
