  • Back To School

    We are looking forward to seeing our students as the start of school approaches. Homeroom teachers have made phone calls to parents their choice of learning model to begin the school year. If you have chosen virtual or blended, there are forms that must be completed at school. Please come by before Tuesday, August 11th to complete those (students do not need to be with you). 

    We are asking that all students, whether blended, virtual, or traditional, make every effort to attend the Soft Start days (see the schedule below). Important procedures will be taught these days that all students will need, including Chromebook use.

    Here are some things to keep in mind as we prepare for the school year:

    • Car drop off is recommended to help with the limited number of students buses can transport. Car drop off will begin at 7:45 (Please note the new time) with a school start time of 8:15.
    • Students will have temperatures checked upon arrival (whether by bus or car).
    • Students should bring a water bottle with their name on it, as water fountains have been turned off for safety.
    • Students will need a backpack large enough to carry a Chromebook (approximately 12" x 8") and charger.
    • Students will need a mask (required for grades 3-6, highly recommended for grades Pre-K - 2).
    • CDC and state health officials strongly recommend that schools limit the number of visitors on campus. Under the current guidelines, families are encouraged to send only their students to campus right now.

    If you have questions that have not been addressed here, please feel free to call the school at 985-229-8225.

  • Soft Start Schedule


     Stronger Together

    August 12-21, 2020 will be a “Soft Start” to the school year. This time will be used to:

    1) teach students appropriate procedures and protocols that will keep them safe during the pandemic,

    2) issue Chromebooks and provide orientation and direct instruction on how to access and effectively utilize the virtual classroom

    Teachers will communicate with their students regarding the schedule for full virtual class meetings and small group instruction, as well as, administer diagnostic exams. This investment of time on the front end will help to ensure a better start to the school year, regardless of whether the student is full virtual or attending school in our buildings. This “soft start” plan will allow students to have time with their teachers to adjust to the new procedures and programs prior to the hard start to school on August 24th.
