Ponchatoula schools dismiss early Friday for festival

Ponchatoula schools dismiss early Friday for festival

Author: Action News 17/Thursday, April 11, 2019/Categories: Front Page, Headlines

Students in Ponchatoula public schools will get out of class a little early on Friday to get buses home before traffic snarls begin on opening day of the 48th annual Strawberry Festival.

Tangipahoa Parish School Superintendent Melissa Stilley announced last month that she would allow early dismissal on this Friday, April 12, which is opening day of the festival.

She said her goal was to get students home prior to the traffic rush for the festival, which is second in size only to Mardi Gras among the state's annual attractions.

Classes will dismiss on traditional half-day schedule at the Ponchatoula public schools. For more information, contact your specific school or check out the district website at
