Cover Letter for School Newspaper

  • Dear Parent/Guardian:

    Federal, State, and School Board regulations require that the St. Mary Parish School Board provide all parents/guardians with critical information relevant to educational mandates and policies.

    As a result, A Guide for St. Mary Parish Schools 2019-2020 is distributed to all students on the first day of school or upon enrollment. It is extremely important that parents/guardians carefully review each section and remain informed of the policies and procedures that guide their child's school.

    This letter is to be signed by parents/guardians and returned to the school indicating that publication has been received and reviewed. Schools will additionally provide parents/guardians with a student handbook, outlining school-based guidelines.


    Michael E. Taylor, President
