Press Release: Plans for Completing the 2019-20 School Year
Posted by School Web Administrator on 4/28/2020
In a press release dated April 24, 2020, the St. Mary Parish School System has shared its plans for ending the school year and finalizing grades. These plans were prepared in response to the governor's extension of school closures.
Students will continue to complete grade-appropriate instructional programs in order to receive credit for courses and meet promotion guidelines.
Course completion will be determined by earning 3 quality points instead of the traditional 4 quality points.
Completion of instructional packets or high school credit recovery programs will be used to determine promotion or course credit for some students. The deadline for completing this supplemental work is May 8, 2020.
Schools may communicate with parents through teleconferencing or phone calls to discuss promotional decisions.
Summer learning opportunities using AR360, Edgenuity, and Clever applications are being planned.
Information about retrieving personal items from classrooms and lockers will be announced as updates to the stay-at-home order are received.
Several high schools have held senior spotlight nights to recognize the Class of 2020. Preparations for formal graduation ceremonies are ongoing and are dependent on the state's re-opening of public areas.
In efforts to encourage and continue the district’s “Learning from Home” program, FJHS will distribute Phase II learning packets on Monday, April 6, 2020, from 3:30-5:30 p.m.
The packets will be formatted in print. However, in the case that you are not able to collect a printed packet, one can be downloaded below by choosing the link that is appropriate to the student's learning level. Additionally, you can visit the teacher's page for more online resources.

Parents/guardians: as a reminder, you can view our school’s flyers when they arrive by email or you can click the Peachjar button on our homepage. To receive flyers by email, register at https://peachjar.com/register.php

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.
