The East Feliciana public schools will be dismissing early at 1:30 p.m. because of approaching bad weather, an official said Thursday.

Knight Roddy, a supervisor with the school system, said there is a “squall line” of storms coming between 3 and 6 p.m. As the schools normally dismiss at 2:45 p.m., they wanted to make sure kids were out of the buses before the storms hit, he said.
