Both campuses of Runnels School will be CLOSED tomorrow, April 18 due to forecasts of enhanced risks of severe weather in the Baton Rouge area. All activities and field trips scheduled for tomorrow have been postponed. With safety as our primary concern, we are closing out of an abundance of caution. We greatly appreciate your understanding and support of this decision.


Runnels Junior To Attend Medical Program at Stanford


Runnels junior Kayla Evans has been selected to participate in Stanford University’s Advanced Emergency Medical program in Palo Alto, CA this summer.
Also known as "Code Black," the 10-day program, staffed by faculty from the Stanford University Department of Emergency Medicine, introduces high school students to life-saving ER medical procedures, disaster and wilderness medicine, and gross anatomy. 
Participants also get a taste of campus life by staying in a Stanford dorm while attending the session. 
Evans, who said she is interested in becoming a surgeon, has already completed Envision's Medicine and Advanced Medicine programs. The "Code Black" program, which offers the latest in facilities, labs, and equipment, is offered to high school students in grades 10-12.
