System dropping half-day registration
Webster Parish schools are omitting a half-day of school this year and parents may need to mark their calendars.
In the past, school registration happened on the first day of school, which was a half-day.
"However, that day did not count as an instructional day," said Morris Busby, Webster Parish School Board Secondary supervisor. "It was really becoming useless, because that day did not count as an instructional day, we were running buses, which was costing money and repeating instructions and directions to students who didn't show up on the half day."Subscribe to Read!
