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.

St. Mary Parish Public Schools will begin registration for pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and first grade students at area schools. In accordance with the age guidelines set by the Louisiana Department of Education, all pre-kindergarten students must be four (4) years old and all kindergarten students must be five (5) years old on or before September 30, 2020, for the 2020-2021 school session.

Parents and guardians are asked to attend registration at the school in their attendance zone. Registration for elementary schools in St. Mary Parish will be held from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM on Thursday May 7, 2020. This may change if the Stay-at- Home order is extended. We will set up registration outside and have chairs set up six feet apart in order to keep everyone safe.
Early registration is essential as it enables the school system to plan accordingly for personnel and teaching materials, thereby ensuring a successful start to the new school year. The deadline for the first round of registrations is May 21. Students who register after the initial deadline will be placed on the round two list and will be assigned to a class based on availability.
Parents are asked to bring copies of the information listed below on the day of registration:
Social security card
Proof of residency

Anyone needing additional information can contact Mrs. Niki Fryou at the Central Office Complex in Centerville at 337-836-9661or firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the school in your residential area.
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.

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.
