In this paper, we study the regularity of convex solutions to the Dirichlet problem of the homogeneous Monge-Ampère equation $\det D^2 u=0$. We prove that if the domain is a strip region and the boundary functions are locally uniformly convex and $C^{k+2,\alpha}$ smooth, then the solution is $C^{k+2,\alpha}$ smooth up to boundary. By an example, we show the solution may fail to be $C^{2}$ smooth if boundary functions are not locally uniformly convex. Similar results have also been obtained for the Dirichlet problem on bounded convex domains.
