“Livingston Parish President Layton Ricks has decided to not close the waterways to recreational traffic at this time. Though the waterways are open, President Ricks urges everyone to follow the federal, State and local guidelines/orders of limiting gatherings to ten (10) people or less, social distancing of at least six (6) feet and regularly washing and sanitizing hands. President Ricks and his staff will continue to monitor the situation. If continued disregard for these guidelines/orders persist regarding waterway activities, the waterways may become closed. President Ricks understands that, in this time of social distancing and very limited access to activities outside of the home, residents and families need to be able to enjoy the outdoors. He just asks that everyone do everything they possibly can to protect themselves and others from COVID-19 exposure. Please stay safe and be mindful of others.”

Livingston Parish Public SchoolsDear Parents and/or Guardians
Livingston Parish Public Schools still wants to provide food and nutrition to our students even during this time while school is closed, so we’re announcing a new program that will deliver meals at your doorstep for free. This program is called Meals-to-You, and it is a partnership between our district, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Baylor University. Your student(s) enrolled at [school district] are eligible to participate in the program.
When you sign up to get a Meals-to-You, every other week you’ll get a Meals-to-You box delivered to your home for each child 1-18 in your household. Each box will include 10 breakfasts and 10 lunches/suppers—enough food for each kid for a week!
All foods are shelf stable, which means you don’t have to worry about them expiring anytime soon. With Meals-to-You, kid-friendly meals are delivered—for FREE—directly to your door, so you don’t have to worry about: • Extra trips to the grocery store • Extra money spent on food • Extra time planning meals your kids will like
If you aren’t home when the box is delivered, no worries. The boxes are packed for security, and because the food is shelf stable, you don’t have to worry about refrigerating the foods immediately. If you will be unable to pick up your box(es) on a given day, be sure to have a neighbor or family get it. And no need to worry; receiving this benefit will NOT affect any other existing benefits.
Boxes will be provided on a first come, first served basis, so sign up online today! Let Meals-to-You take away the stress of buying extra groceries during this time. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact your school’s principal or email@example.com
Sincerely, Alan Joe Murphy Superintendent Livingston Parish Public Schools ... See MoreSee Less
