  • Birthday treats this year

    Posted by Lauren Matte on 9/3/2020

    Starting this year, parents will not be able to bring homemade treats for students' birthdays. You may still bring cupcakes, but they must be store bought. Also the seal cannot be broken. If we reveive any treats that are homemade, your child will not be able to share with classmates and will bring them home. While this is not the best news, we must do what is best to protect the health of all our children. Thank you for understanding.

  • Return to school Information

    Posted by Lauren Matte on 8/22/2020

    We have just learned that K-5 students will once again be split into two groups but only for the first two days of school. Half the students will come on Tuesday, September 8th, and half will come on Wednesday, September 9th. Specific information about when your child/children will attend will be released next week.

    The Louisiana Office of Public Health (OPH) has declared that neck gaiters and vented masks are not acceptable forms of face coverings. While we realize parents might have secured these items already, it is out of our control what the health officials deem appropriate to stop the spread of Covid. Please help us keep everyone safe by sending your child with masks that follow the OPH and SMP guidelines. We know this is not ideal, but we want to do everything in our power to keep our children healthy. Thank you.

  • School start date pushed back

    Posted by Lauren Matte on 8/7/2020

    Our first day of school has been pushed back to September 8th.  On this day, all students in K-5 who are doing in-person learning will come to school. There will be no split A/B days in the beginning as was originally planned. Pre-K students will start a few days later, and we will let you  know the dates as soon as we know.

    The parent orientation for virtual students will be a virtual orientation; parents will not be coming on campus. The district will post a link on the district homepage, and we will send it out as soon as we have it. Parents will use the link to participate in the meeting. The dates and times are as follows: Elementary-Aug. 11th at 1:00 and 5:30. Middle School-Aug. 13th at 1:00 and 5:30. High School-Aug. 10th and Aug. 12th at 5:30. If you have questions, email Ms. Domingue. Computers will be distributed once we receive them, which at this time we do not have an arrival date. *NOTE: The first day paperwork that was sent home with your child's virtual schedule must be returned to school as soon as possible. You may mail it back or drop it off at the office.

    Keep reading, panthers! Take care and know that we miss you!

  • Be Wary of Open Enrollment Scams

    Posted by Susan Dupre on 11/13/2019

    Two important deadlines are quickly approaching for adding or changing your health coverage if you use one of the following options: 

    • Medicare:  December 7
    • Affordable Care Act (ACA): December 15

    Gretchen Abraham from the FTC's Division of Consumer & Business Education has shared the following tips on the Federal Trade Commission's website to help you avoid being scammed:

    For Medicare:

    • There are no Medicare sales representatives. Anyone who tried to sell you Medicare insurance is a scammer. 
    • You do NOT have to join a prescription drug plan to keep your Medicare insurance. Medicare Part D is voluntary and has nothing to do with your regular Medicare coverage.
    • Telephone scammers posing as "official agents" may ask for personal information, offer free equipment or services, ask for a quick payment, or threaten you. Just hang up.
    • Help with Medicare is available at medicare.gov or 1-800-MEDICARE.

    For Affordable Care Act:

    • Compare plans and quality ratings at healthcare.gov, where you can also enroll.
    • This year, you can also sign up for an ACA plan directly with certain certified partners.  Make sure a company is on the Certified Partner list before giving them your information. 
    • After you apply for ACA, you may get a phone call from the Marketplace asking you to verify information or supply additional information. If you are unsure about trusting the caller, ask the representative to mail you a letter with instructions for completing your application.
    • Help for ACA is available from the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596.  You can also meet with a local assistant in your community who will offer free assistance. Local assistance can be found through the Local Assistance tool.
