This message is to provide you with an update on the Ascension Parish School Board's efforts to create a new feeder system when Prairieville High School opens in Fall 2024. In order to create a new feeder system, it is necessary to adjust attendance zones for middle schools that feed into the new high school, as well as primary schools that feed into the middle schools. This is why creating new attendance zones will impact most schools across the East Side of the district including primary, middle, and high schools.
