  • Hurricane Delta School Closure

    Posted by CHS Webmaster on 10/7/2020


     RE:  Hurricane Delta Closure and Distance Learning Scheduled

     The approach of Hurricane Delta as a major hurricane will necessitate the closure of all schools and offices of the St. Mary Parish School Board on Thursday, October 8th. Students will be scheduled for distance learning in lieu of attending school on campus October 8th, which will foster a continuation of instructional activities while families make preparations for the impending hurricane. 

     All offices and schools of the St. Mary Parish School Board will be closed on Thursday, October 8th and schools and offices will remain closed for the previously scheduled “fall break” on Friday and Monday. Students and staff will return to school on Tuesday, October 13th.                 

    Additionally, the St. Mary Parish School Board meeting will be cancelled on Thursday, October 8th and rescheduled to Thursday, October 15th at 5:00 p.m. in the Evans Medine Board Room. An updated board agenda will be publicized prior to the meeting.

     Parents should monitor school and district websites for ongoing coverage of the response to Hurricane Delta as events transpire. The safety and security of students and staff is of deepest concern and we ask that all citizens take every precaution in preparing for this storm.

  • Every Child Counts - 2020 Census

    Posted by CHS Webmaster on 9/24/2020

    census Every home has received an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. Louisiana’s self-response rate is just under 57 percent, which is below the national average. There are a number of parishes where the rate is in the 30s and 20s. Please consider using your system’s communications channels to encourage employees, families and other stakeholders to complete the 2020 Census.

     The 2020 Census count impacts the federal funds that communities receive each year for programs and services that are critical for schools, students and younger children, such as:

    ·    Special education, Head Start, after-school programs, and classroom technology

    ·    Food assistance, including free and reduced-price school lunches

    ·    Maternal and child health programs

    ·    Planning, preparedness and recovery efforts for national emergencies, including COVID-19

     Self-responses, which can be completed online, by phone or by mail until September 30, ensures federal funding to support Louisiana students.

     The Department encourages school systems to explore the 2020 Census Toolbox to find general resources and activities specially designed to be engaging and appropriate for each grade level, from counting for kindergarteners to examining career statistics for high schoolers.

    As part of ongoing preparations to launch a successful start to the school year, St. Mary Parish Schools will be conducting a series of overview sessions for parents who have elected virtual (online) learning for their children. Each session is dedicated to helping prepare students and parents for the daily instruction and routines that will be required at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.

    Parents who have elected to enroll their children in the district’s virtual education program should attend overview sessions according to their child’s grade level. Since each overview is different, parents may need to attend more than one session.  All trainings will be delivered online and can be accessed from any device that has internet access, including mobile phones.

    Parent overview sessions will be hosted over the course of several days beginning Tuesday, August 11, with two timeslots to accommodate a parent’s schedule.

    At the conclusion of these overview sessions, parents will have until August 19 to make adjustments to their selection of online learning. The district will not be able to honor any educational option changes after August 19 as student schedules for both on-campus and virtual schooling will be finalized.

  • Updates to 2020-21 School Calendar

    Posted by CHS Webmaster on 8/7/2020


    The St. Mary Parish School Board has voted to enact the changes to the district's School Calendar proposed by Dr. Teresa Bagwell at the Special Session held on Thursday, August 6, at 4:00 PM. 

    The changes to the school calendar were based on several factors, including

    • the importance of providing additional preparation time as teachers transition to virtual instruction.
    • the desire to share more information with parents about their role when choosing a virtual education for their children.
    • the concerns of parents about returning their children to traditional learning in the face of a COVID-19 pandemic.
    • the need to ensure that the technology to make online learning work was ready to be deployed.

    The Board's vote postpones the first day of school for St. Mary Parish students to Tuesday, Sept. 8.

  • End of Year Information

    Posted by CHS Webmaster on 4/24/2020

    There will NOT be a 3rd packet of work.

    The date set by the district to return packets 1 and 2 is May 8th. We will send more information for the pick-up at a later time. Parents, please do not stress. If your child's grades struggled throughout the year, the packet may be used to help grades. If your child has done fine with grades, just turn in what you have completed.

    If you need either of the packets, we will be at school Monday-Friday from 8AM-12PM starting April 27. You can pick up the packets during those times.

    Seniors will have a graduation ceremony; however, no date has been set at this time.

    We will have a Junior Ring Ceremony at a later date. We will make arrangements for juniors to pick up their rings before the actual ceremony so they can wear their rings this summer.

    At this time, PreK, kindergarten, and 8th grade ceremonies are not being rescheduled.

    Teachers will clean out student desks and bag all personal items. We will then set a pick up date for parents to pick up student's items. We will follow a similar procedure for high school and junior high students to get their belongings out of their lockers.

  • Leader in Me Survey

    Posted by CHS Webmaster on 4/22/2020

    We want to hear from you!

    Our school is conducting a Leader in Me survey to learn more about key areas of strength and areas of needed growth in our school. In order for us to have a holistic picture of what is going on in our school, we are asking all full-time staff members, parents/guardians, and students in Grade 4 and up to participate.

    So I am asking all parents and students in grades 4-12 who have not completed the Leader in Me survey to complete the online survey to share your opinion, but you do not have to share who you are on the survey. We look forward to hearing your voice on how you feel about our school! Please do your best to answer honestly, so we can work together to improve our school community.


    This is a different survey than the parish parental involvement survey.

  • 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 or 1-800-MEDICARE.

    For Affordable Care Act:

    • Compare plans and quality ratings at, 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.
