Livingston, Assumption and Tangipahoa parishes start school

WALKER, LA (WAFB) - Students and teachers in Livingston, Assumption and Tangipahoa parishes started school Thursday.

Busloads of kids arrived at Walker High bright and early to begin the new school year. With new advanced placement (AP) courses and extra-curricular programs, school officials said they hope to give their students options when it comes to learning in a number of different subject areas.

Some students shared what they're looking forward to this school year.

"The office, library, I think I requested the digital media one, so I'm looking forward to all the classes I'm taking this year," said Kyle Baudoin, a senior.

"I'm really excited," added Madie Easley, another senior. "I can't wait to see what this year has in store for seniors. This year, we have a foreign exchange student, so I'm really excited to show her around Louisiana and show her how awesome Walker High School is."

Students in East Baton Rouge Parish will head back to class on Monday.
