After all of the hustle and bustle of the holidays, Christmas is finally here. Indulge in the food, enjoy time spent with your family and cherish the holiday memories. Merry Christmas, St. Helena.

The schools St. Helena Parish and surrounding areas are closed for the Christmas holidays.

St. Helena Parish Sheriff Nat Williams encourages the community to take a little extra caution while driving to work or other destinations, as children could be out riding their new bikes they got from Santa. Students will return to school on Jan. 5.
