The St. Mary Parish School Board recognizes that there may be occasions that require the closure of district schools, including events such as weather and health emergencies. If an emergency occurs, the district will make every effort to ensure that educational opportunities for our students can continue while they are at home. In the past few years, the district has acquired a comprehensive collection of online content and digital resources that can be accessed from locations beyond our traditional school sites. The district will provide mobile devices for students to check out for home use to support continuing learning without interruption. The district will also extend internet access to users via school and community hot spots.
The district’s Instructional Continuity Plan (ICP) has four primary components: Content Delivery, Implementation, Mobile Devices, and Internet Access.
Implementation offers sample schedules for situations where to traditional school attendance must be altered or suspended. Content Delivery explains which resources students will use for core instruction and which materials can be used as supplemental resources to enhance core instruction. Mobile Devices provides the steps the district is taking to ensure that district students who need mobile devices to access instructional resources will be provided with one, upon request, for the duration of the school closure period. Internet Access for students poses the greatest challenge to ensuring that our students can continue their studies while at home. Partnership with service providers is crucial to providing free or reduced-cost internet service to students if district schools must close due to emergency situations. The district has developed a webpage with information for parents and students about this plan. The website is located at https://www.stmaryk12.net/learnathome and included the latest version of the Instructional Continuity Plan.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and for the health of students and staff, we have developed routines and procedures for cleaning and safety. Our guidelines and practices are in line with the recommendations from the CDC, Office of Public Health, and the St. Mary Parish School Board. Stipulations will be followed closely and effectively as required. In the event that we have to go to distant learning, Bayou Vista Elementary faculty and staff will put forth all efforts to ensure learning continues. Due to this pandemic, many things discussed in this handbook, such as clubs, field trips, student events, etc. are subject to change based on the recommendations of health officials. View our school handbook, mask protocol, and other school year information in the "For Parents" Section above.

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.
