Parent Overview Sessions for Virtual Education Scheduled

Posted by District on 8/9/2020 5:00:00 PM

As part of ongoing preparations to launch a successful start to the school year, St. Mary Parish Schools will be conducting a series of overview sessions for parents who have elected virtual (online) learning for their children. Each session is dedicated to helping prepare students and parents for the daily instruction and routines that will be required at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.

Parents who have elected to enroll their children in the district’s virtual education program should attend overview sessions according to their child’s grade level. Since each overview is different, parents may need to attend more than one session.  All trainings will be delivered online and can be accessed from any device that has internet access, including mobile phones.

Parent overview sessions will be hosted over the course of several days beginning Tuesday, August 11, with two timeslots to accommodate a parent’s schedule.

  • Elementary School:  Tuesday, August 11 (1:00-2:00 PM) and (5:30-6:30 PM)
  • Middle School: Thursday, August 13 (1:00-2:00 PM.) and (5:30-6:30 PM
  • High School:  Wednesday, August 12 and Monday, August 17 (5:30-6:30 PM)

At the conclusion of these overview sessions, parents will have until August 19 to make adjustments to their selection of online learning. The district will not be able to honor any educational option changes after August 19 as student schedules for both on-campus and virtual schooling will be finalized.
