  • Meals-to-You Replaces Grab-and-Go

    Posted by Bellard on 3/27/2020 3:10:00 PM

    St. Mary Parish Schools endeavors to provide food and nutrition to our students even during this time of emergency school closure. As such, the school system is announcing a new program that will deliver meals to the doorstep for free. This program is called Meals-to-You, and it is a partnership between St. Mary Parish Schools, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Baylor University.   

    For a family to participate, at least one child in the household must

    •  attend a CEP School:
      • Aucoin Elementary
      • B. Edward Boudreaux Middle
      • Bayou Vista Elementary
      • Berwick Elementary
      • Centerville High
      • Foster Elementary
      • Franklin Senior High
      • Franklin Junior High
      • Hattie Watts Elementary
      • LaGrange Elementary
      • Maitland Elementary
      • Morgan City High

      • Wyandotte Elementary
    • OR be designated as free or reduced-priced meals eligible at non-CEP schools

    When parents or guardians sign-up for Meals-to-You, every other week they will receive a Meals-to-You box delivered to their home for each child ages 1-18. Each box will include 10 breakfasts and 10 lunches/suppers, All food items are shelf stable and packaged securely. Contents do not have to be refrigerated immediately, and a friend or neighbor can retrieve the packages for you if you are not home at delivery time. 

    With Meals-to-You, kid-friendly meals are delivered—for FREE—directly to the family, avoiding extra trips to the grocery store, extra money spent on food, and extra time planning meals that kids will like. This benefit will NOT affect any existing benefits. 

    All parents/ guardians will need to complete an online application form and submit it by Monday, March 30th. Access to the online form is available at the following link:  

    Meal boxes will be provided on a first come, first served basis, so parents/guardians should sign up online as quickly as possible.

    LaGrange Elementary School is participating in the U. S. Census Bureau's Statistics in Schools (SIS) program to unite schools around the country in an effort to count every child in the 2020 Census. 

    The national census is conducted every 10 years. Data from this census is used to determine funding for many programs including special education, classroom technology, teacher training, after-school programs, and school lunch assistance. 

    In mid-March, your family should begin receiving official Census 2020 mail with instructions on how to respond. By April 1, 2020, every home should receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. You will have three options for responding:

    By phone
    By mail

    LaGrange Elementary School urges every family to participate. The Statistics in Schools flyer in English and Spanish can provide you with additional information for this important upcoming event. You can also find these flyers in our Peachjar E-Flyers area.

  • 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.
