Summer Adventure Camps (June 7 - 22, 2021) will be offered free-of-charge to Pre-K through 5th graders. Students will participate in fun and engaging art, PE, reading/social studies, and math/science activities. This exciting adventure will take place on elementary school campuses in St. Mary Parish.
Daily sessions will begin at 7:30 AM and end at 12:00 PM. Students will be served breakfast and lunch daily. Bus transportation will be provided.
School principals will be sharing application information with students at their schools. Responses must be submitted before April 9, 2021.
Students are expected to work to their fullest potential and behave in such a way that they will learn and not interfere with the learning of their classmates. In addition, student attendance will be carefully monitored to ensure each child receives maximum benefits from this program. Students can be dropped from the program and replaced with other students from the school's waiting list.
St. Mary Parish Public School students will return to school Monday, November 30, as scheduled, under the state's Modified Phase 2 guidelines.
Gov. Edwards and BESE agreed that local school systems can continue to operate under Phase 3 guidelines as part of the Modified Phase 2 plans that will be in effect until Dec. 23.
To further support health and safety, the Maintenance Department conducted a thorough sanitation cleaning of all school buildings during the Thanksgiving holidays. All public health procedures for addressing COVID-19 remain intact and will be strictly followed to keep students and staff healthy and safe at school.
We will continue to monitor public health data as we strive to provide our students with an exceptional education in these challenging times.

It has been over a year since COVID-19 made its first appearance in our area. In response to thevirus, we have adapted to new daily routines to help stay safe and healthy: keep your distance, wear a mask, and wash your hands. A few months ago, several vaccines becameavailable, and the scammers of the world saw an opportunity. Because of these quick-thinking scammers, our new daily routines should also include keeping a watchful eye on our bank accounts and personal information and making smart decision when it comes to sharing personal information.
“Fraudsters are always looking to take advantage of significant world events. The COVID-19 pandemic and its corresponding rapid digital acceleration brought about by stay-at-home orders is a global event unrivaled in the online age,” said Shai Cohen, senior vice president of Global Fraud Solutions at TransUnion.
According to Colleen Tressler, the scammers’ newest attempt toswindle your personal information involves sending phony vaccine surveys. Ms. Tressler is with the FTC’s Division of Consumer and Business Education and in her article, she states that these opportunistic scammers are sending emails and text messages with links to surveys. These surveys appear to be legitimate, but it is all an elaborate ruse to steal your personal data. Her advice to avoid being scammedis simple:
Do not click on any links or open attachments.
Do not call or use the number in the email or text.
Do not give out your banking account, credit card, or personal information.
In the same way that we are vigilant in protecting our health, we must also be vigilant in protecting our financial and personal information. Just like viruses, scammers are out there looking for a weak spot to capitalize on – inoculate yourself against these scammers by keeping your information private.
