Superintendent's Welcome

   Welcome to St. Mary Parish Schools
Superintendent Armato
St. Mary Parish is a school district committed to providing a quality education for all students. The district has worked to develop and maintain a reputation as an elite, proactive, and successful school district dedicated to student achievement as its top priority. As superintendent, it is my responsibility to place students at the forefront of all decision-making while supporting teachers with the necessary resources for effective instruction. Working together with stakeholders, my goal is to respect, support, and set high expectations for all employees to ensure a valuable, productive, and safe educational environment.
I personally invite you to discover St. Mary Parish from this virtual environment. In addition to district and school directories, the website provides helpful information such as school board policies, cafeteria menus, bus routes, and links to individual websites for each of our 23 schools. Parents are encouraged to obtain login information from their child’s school to access attendance and class grades through the Student Progress Center. 
Mr. Leonard J. Armato, Superintendent


  • NCSAM (Week 3) and Digital Citizenship Week

    Posted by Susan Dupre at 10/19/2016

    As part of this observation, parents are encouraged to "Take the Pledge" to empower kids to use technology safely, responsibly, and respectfully, thus providing young people with the digital citizenship skills they need to thrive in today's world.

    Here's the pledge: I pledge to empower my kids to use technology safely, responsibly, and respectfully. Together, we will provide young people with the digital citizenship skills they need to thrive in today's world.

    Why take the pledge?  While technology provides increased opportunities for students, there is also a responsibility to teach them about technology's pitfalls so they can avoid them.  If we don't teach our kids, who will?
