If you are trying to contact any of seven Ascension Parish schools, you probably are not having any luck today.
Ascension Public Schools released this statement on their Facebook page:
The phones lines and Internet are down at the following schools and offices:
Ascension Head Start,
Donaldsonville Primary School,
Donaldsonville High School,
Lowery Elementary School,
Lowery Middle School,
Sorrento Primary School, and
Central Office in Donaldsonville.
Our staff are working with Eatel to identify and address the issue.
We will update you as soon as we learn more.
In the meantime, please know that this does not impact our school day, which is progressing as normally as possible.
Also, remember that today is an early dismissal day for all schools, and there is no school for students on Friday.
There is no word yet on what caused the phone and internet outages.
More information will be provided when it becomes available.
