St. Amant High School to Return Home Monday, Feb. 13

St. Amant, La. – After six months of being displaced by the Flood of 2016, St. Amant High School will return to its campus on Monday, Feb. 13, 2017. The move-in date comes on the heels of a successful Fire Marshal inspection completed today.

"We are very excited that the Gators will get back to their home campus," said Ascension Public Schools Superintendent David Alexander. "The return of our largest displaced school is certainly a major milestone in our road to recovery, and we anxiously await our other displaced schools moving in the coming weeks."

St. Amant High's 2,000 students will return to their home campus in a brand new Freshman Academy and cafeteria, as well as temporary classroom buildings while flooded facilities are restored. This will also end the platooning schedule for STA and its host school, Dutchtown High.

Students and parents of St. Amant High and Dutchtown High will receive detailed communications from their respective school principal regarding transportation, scheduling and class logistics.
