Some students in Vermilion Parish will be spending their Saturdays in a classroom as the new North Vermilion Middle School under construction won't be complete in time for the first day of school.

The delayed construction will affect both North Vermilion Middle students and North Vermilion High School students for at least the first month of class. For the first week of classes, middle school students will attend class at the high school on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and high school students will go on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

The schedule will alternate weekly.
