  • Covid-19 Precautions

    Here is a basic overview of some precautions and routines we are implementing to help maintain the safety of our students and faculty during this difficult time.

    1. Buses will be at half capacity and may have to run two loads when needed. We encourage parents to drop-off students, if possible, to avoid the number of students on the bus and to help maintain the flow of students entering.
    2. Students riding the bus will enter the main hall. There are black dots on the right for upper elementary 6 feet apart and red dots on the left of the walkway that are 6 feet apart for lower elementary.
    3. Students entering will head straight to the cafeteria to wash their hands, pick up their breakfast, and then head straight to their classrooms where they will be temperature checked.
    4. Students’ desks will be 4-6 ft. apart (to the extent possible) based on CDC recommendations. Squares on the floor will mark each student area.
    5. Scheduled handwashing with soap and water will be before breakfast, after restroom break, before/after lunch, after recess, and when exiting the restroom. More washing may be done as needed or when able.
    6. Parents are encouraged to send a water bottle with students. (Please label with the student’s name.) We will have areas for them to refill their bottles when needed. Water fountains have been turned off. -----These water bottles should be used for water only.
    7. Recess areas are designated for classes, and they will not play on the playground equipment or mix with any other class.
    8. Desks, light switches, door handles, etc. will be cleaned between each class transition by the teacher and several times by the custodians.
    9. Students will transaction in a manner so that they do not pass closely to another class. 6 feet distance will be used.
    10. Students will have P.E. They will have activities that do not allow them to touch each other nor will be mixed with another class.
    11. We will be doing Harambe virtually and no assemblies or large group gathers will happen at this time.
    12. Lunch schedules have been spread out to accommodate only a few classes at a time. Classes will be separated by distance and partitions.
    13. Buses and car riders will be dismissed separately. Car riders will be called first. Buses will be separated and called one at a time. Early buses will each have a designated side of the hallway to walk while being monitored by faculty.
    14. Students with a temperature of 100.4 or above will be removed from class and laced in a designated area. Parents will be called and must pick up the child.
    15. Students in 3rd-5th grade must wear a mask. (Please label with your child’s name.) We will have mask breaks throughout the day. They will not have to wear them during P.E. due to the amount of space available and during recess or lunch.
    16. No person other than a district staff may enter the main school building at any time. Visitors needing to drop off items or needing assistance mut communicate with the secretary in the front office.
    17. Anyone entering the building (other than Pre-k – 2nd graders) must wear a mask and be COVID-19 symptom free. Please read and follow all signage posted.

    There are many more processes and procedures that we are doing to maintain everyone’s safety. These are just some basic cautions we have put into place.

    Please know that this may changed based on the CDC, LA Dept of Health, or the governor.

  • 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 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.
