Attention all citizens of Avoyelles Parish ---especially those in Fifth Ward...
The board received what we deem a pretty fair offer to sell the old Fifth Ward High/Marksville Middle School. If you would like your thoughts head on the matter, please contact your school board member and/or attend the board meeting on Tuesday, May 1. The vote on whether or not to sell it will be at that meeting. The meeting begins at 5:00.
