In order to help prevent the spread of coronavirus in Terrebonne Parish, a Parish-wide curfew has been jointly implemented by Terrebonne Parish President Gordon Dove, Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Jerry Larpenter, and Houma Police Chief Dana Coleman, beginning April 1, 2020, from 10PM till 5AM and will remain in effect daily until further notice.
Kids need to be prepared for storm season by making a plan just like adults. The Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness has a great tool to empower kids to make their own plan. The attached packet approaches the topic with fun word finds and lists. They are walked through the process by a friendly gator, and the items that they need are repeated throughout. Kids can use this to make an important and possibly lifesaving activity fun and less scary. Many Terrebonne kids have had to evacuate, and some have lost their homes to hurricanes. Others have had to adapt and move to new school buildings. This fun set keeps the important information while providing games to teach without a lectures or fear. These are available at the Planning Department at 8026 Main Street, Second Floor as well as here online.
