Public schools in Red River Parish are in recess for the last major holiday of the school year. They are out for Memorial Day. The nation celebrates the last Monday in May each year as a memorial to those who have defended this country.
The school’s Memorial Day break started Thursday, May 26 and lasts through Monday, May 30. Red River schools said, “As we enjoy our time away from the regimen of school, let us not forget the purpose and meaning of Memorial Day. Freedom comes with a great price, and it is paid for by the ultimate sacrifice of brave men and women who have given their lives so that we can be free. We give honor to them as we celebrate Memorial Day.”
Public school classes resume Tuesday, May 31.
