Letter from the Superintendent

  • To our School System Family:

    St. Bernard Parish School District has been made aware of an employee post that was insensitive, inappropriate, and unacceptable. The views expressed are not representative of Arabi Elementary School or the St. Bernard Parish School System. We are currently pursuing an investigation and will take appropriate action.

    St. Bernard Parish Public School System strives to be a safe and welcoming place for all students. We believe deeply in ensuring all of our students have the support and resources necessary to thrive. Our district has put policies and practices into place to ensure all students are treated with dignity and respect.

    We, as St. Bernard Parish educators, stand with and support our Black students, families, and staff.

     

    Sincerely,

    Doris Voitier, Superintendent of St. Bernard Parish Schools

    St. Bernard Parish K-12 Registration

    St. Bernard Parish Public School System will be registering new students enrolling in grades kindergarten through 12th grade beginning June 8. Students who attended a St. Bernard Parish Public School during the 2019-2020 school year do not need to reenroll.

    Parents or legal guardians will need to call their student’s district school to schedule an in-person appointment to register. New residents can determine their district school by entering their address into www.sbpsb.org/schoolzones.

    Students who are transferring schools within our system and have been previously enrolled in a St. Bernard Parish Public School will also need to make an appointment to verify residency.

    Each school’s contact information can be found on our district website by clicking the specific school on the top left portion of the page.

    At the time of the appointment, parents or legal guardians should be prepared with all required documentation. A list of the required documentation can be found by visiting www.sbpsb.org/registration.  Registration packets will be provided at the time of the appointment. Registration will take approximately 45 minutes.

    For all appointments, all social distancing measures and health precautions will be followed. Only one parent or guardian will be allowed in the building for registration with the exception of those families who need the assistance of a translator.  Registrants and staff members will be required to wear a mask, and temperatures will be taken prior to entering the building.

    Questions or concerns can be directed to our Central Office at 504-301-2000 or the school’s principal.

    Summer Feeding Program

    Each summer, St. Bernard Parish Public Schools provides students with meals. This year’s program will be offered at Chalmette Elementary and Smith Elementary. Breakfast and lunches will be available in a take-and-go style and served simultaneously Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11:00 A.M. – 1:00 P.M. Children under the age of 18 are eligible and must be present to receive a meal. Nurseries interested in participating in the program need to contact Joni Blum at 504-301-2000 extension 1166.

    Pandemic EBT Benefits

    Amid the ongoing health crisis, Louisiana has been approved for the new Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program. This program will provide extra help buying groceries for the families of the more than 600,000 children who normally receive free and reduced-price meals at school.

    Families with students at any of our elementary schools, middle schools, or Rowley Alternative are automatically eligible. An application must be completed at the following website: https://pebt.doe.louisiana.gov/PublicApps/SNP/

    Chalmette High School students who received free and reduced-price meals are eligible as well. If your child attends Chalmette High School and you did not complete an application last fall or if your financial situation has changed and you would now qualify for free or reduced lunch, please visit www.sbpsb.org/lunchapp.  Once you have been approved for free or reduced lunch, an application for the program can be completed at the website below: https://pebt.doe.louisiana.gov/PublicApps/SNP/

    The deadline to apply is June 8th at 4:30 P.M.
