Be part of the conversation! Speak Up, a national research project facilitated by Project Tomorrow, provides an easy way for district stakeholders to share their views on technology and learning with St. Mary Parish administrators. Your survey answers can affect local decisions about technology, as well as contribute to the national dialogue about educational technology.
Voluntary participation from educators, staff, parents/guardians, students, and community members in this survey will help us answer important questions about student technology use inside and outside the classroom and about your views concerning key issues impacting the education of our students.
Since 2003, Project Tomorrow has collected and shared the viewpoints of more than 5.7 million participants through its yearly survey. All responses are 100% confidential, and no identifying information is collected about/from any participant.
Taking the survey is easy! (approximately 20 minutes)

ASC is not a homework center but we do our best to complete homework on a daily basis. There are times when we are not able to complete homework and appreciate your understanding with this matter.
We try our best to provide a quiet place and time for students to complete homework; however, parents are asked to check their child’s homework at home. ASC personnel are not responsible for checking to make sure that work is completed or completed correctly. Students are not allowed to return to their classrooms for any items that were forgotten. Please stress responsibility and the importance in packing correctly before leaving their classrooms.
After Care Program was established to provide a safe, inexpensive, after school environment for our students whose parents work; therefore, any student who misbehaves in ASC will be subjected to the same disciplinary actions that would be taken during regular school hours.
Students may bring DVDs from home as long as they are rated G and are labeled with their name.
Students are allowed to bring their own snacks (no candy or nuts of any kinds) but are not allowed to bring their own drinks.
Please notify us of any changes to contact information ASAP.

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.
