Back To School

Concordia Parish students return to school next week with the opening day slated for Friday, Aug. 9, according to Superintendent Whest Shirley.

He said students would be dismissed at 12:30 p.m. on Friday.

“We are fully staffed and excited about Friday,” Shirley said.

“We had a huge turn out for our ‘Parent Fest’ at Ferriday Junior High School last Saturday,” Shirley said.

He said a similar event is slated this week – Thursday, Aug. 1 -- from 5 to 7:30 p.m. in Vidalia.

The “Back-to-School Parent Fest” will be held behind the fire station under the covered basketball courts, Shirley said.

Delta Charter opens on Aug. 16.
