MOREHOUSE PARISH, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Morehouse Parish Schools Superintendent George Noflin says crews are working to resolve heating issues at several buildings.

Noflin says most of the issues have been resolved and were computer based. The four schools where the heat is back to normal are: Bastrop High School, Morehouse Jr. High School, Bastrop Learning Academy and Delta Jr. High School.

Noflin would not state to KNOE 8 News what schools are still having issues, but the district will hold classes as scheduled on Wednesday. Below is a statement released by Noflin to the district's parents. He is asking parents to dress their children appropriately for the possible cooler conditions.

"Hi.  This is Dr. George Noflin, Superintendent of Morehouse Parish Schools.  I would like to inform you that we are having difficulties with some of our heating systems at schools throughout the district.  Our maintenance department is aware of these problems and are working diligently to getting these issues resolved.  It is our decision for schools to remain in session.  We are soliciting your assistance during this time by ensuring that your child is dressed appropriately.  Please be assured that we are concerned about the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff and will continue to provide a healthy and safe learning environment. Thank you for your support of Morehouse Parish School System."
