Ascension Public Schools dismissing early Tuesday
The Ascension Public Schools System is dismissing classes early Tuesday due to weather impacts from Tropical Storm Harvey.
High schools and middle schools will dismiss at 12:30 p.m., and primary schools will dismiss at 1:30 p.m.
Earlier this morning, Ascension Parish moved from a flood watch to a flood warning, and according to emergency officials, the potential for flood impacts to roads may worsen as the day progresses. The schools system says it is timing the early releases with an anticipated break in the weather.
All after-school activities are cancelled for today, and a decision regarding school for Wednesday, Aug. 30, will be made Tuesday evening.
