Bossier Parish Schools: Benton Middle School Update
As you know, Benton Middle School sustained extensive storm damage Saturday night, but we at Bossier Schools are immensely grateful this weather incident did not occur during school hours when more than 1,100 students and employees were there. For that reason, we are so blessed.
Classes will be canceled for all Benton Middle School students Monday, January 13, 2020. We will use the day as a faculty/staff work day and welcome our Tigers back to school Tuesday, January 14. This affects Benton Middle School students only.
We cannot stress enough how grateful our district is to the public that has reached out to help. One way to do that is to assist our teachers in replacing the personal classroom materials they lost, which amounts to many thousands of dollars spent over years of teaching.
For those wanting to contribute, checks can be made payable to Benton Middle School and mailed to 6140 Hwy. 3, Benton, LA 71006. Checks can also be made to Benton Middle School and dropped off at First National Bank of Benton.
Thanks to everyone for their support. Bossier Schools and Benton Middle School are beyond grateful.
