  • St. Mary Parish Makeup Dates

    Posted by Kimberly Saucier on 1/23/2018 11:10:00 AM

    January 23, 2018


    The St. Mary Parish School Board approved adjustments to the school calendar that resulted from weatherrelated closures throughout the 2017-2018 school year. The loss of instructional time will primarily be reinstated through the inclusion of emergency days annually identified as part of the school calendar. Severe weather conditions including Hurricane Harvey and extreme winter temperatures caused the district to close all schools for six days.

    In an effort to restore instructional time, the district will add the following days to the remaining school year:

    • February 14-16, 2018 • March 15, 2018

    Additionally, Raintree Elementary will adjust its daily schedule by 20 minutes to resolve school days missed due to an interruption of the school’s water service. The revised schedule will mean that Raintree Elementary students will attend school from 8:00 a.m.-3:20 p.m. beginning Monday, February 5th and ending Friday, April 27th. The extra minutes will help mitigate the additional three days Raintree was unable to hold classes.

    Superintendent Leonard Armato expressed his concern for the interruption of instruction and empathizes with issues raised regarding needed adjustments to the school calendar. “The school district is deeply mindful of the need to meet state instructional guidelines and ensure that students have every opportunity to receive classroom instruction that will adequately prepare them to attain promotional standards. Ongoing weather conditions have made it necessary to periodically close schools in order to maintain student safety as they travel to school each day. Our main priority is to offer students a safe and comprehensive education and the reinstatement of instructional time will support that endeavor.”

  • FEMA Disaster Fraud

    Posted by Susan Dupre on 2/7/2018

    If you've been affected by a recent natural disaster, has some called and asked you to verify your FEMA registration?

    Multiple complaints have been filed by people who have been scammed by thieves pretending to be employees of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).  These include survivors from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, as well as victims of the California wildfires.

    • Victims have received phone calls asking them for personal information--even though they didn't apply for FEMA assistance.
    • When victims do try to apply for FEMA assistance, they discover that someone has already applied using their names because they receive a "verification error."
    • People claiming to be FEMA inspectors have been asking to gain entry to damaged homes. These individuals wear a shirt or jacket with the FEMA name, but they do not possess a FEMA photo ID badge.
    • Inspectors ask for money before starting an inspection. (Federal and state workers will never ask for or accept money.

    If you or someone you know may have fallen victim to or have knowledge of these types of frauds, visit the FEMA Disaster Fraud page for more information.
