Students impacted by changes
Both parish elementary and middle schools are being synchronized to complement the high schools’ schedule.
I.A. Lewis and Ruston Junior High students must be at school at 8 a.m. and will dismiss slightly before the high schools.
Elementary schools in Ruston are slated to start at 7:45 a.m. and dismiss at 3 p.m.
On this new system, the elementary students will be picked up and dropped off by buses before the high schoolers.
