    Dear Families:

    Welcome to a brand new year in the St. Bernard Parish School System! We are glad to have you as part of our school family and hope you are looking forward to the 2019-2020 academic year.

    Each year, our school community unites around a single theme. This year, we will celebrate our connections – both those that nurture our minds and hearts. One connection we know is vital to our students’ success is our relationships with our families. This year, we are excited to continue to partner with you to ensure that your child thrives.

    As part of our partnership, each year we ask for your support in defraying the cost of necessary instructional supplies through the assessment of an instructional fee. These fees are used to purchase workbooks, consumable textbooks, educational publications, and hands-on materials that your child uses in class each day. The instructional fee for each child in our elementary and middle schools is $15, while the fee per child for the high school is $25. While the actual costs of these materials exceed these amounts, your payment of the instructional fee will be a tremendous help to your child’s school in providing enrichment and reinforcement of the curriculum. We would appreciate your cooperation in sending this amount to your child’s homeroom teacher during the first two weeks of school. If this presents a problem, please contact your child’s principal.

    We thank you for your continued support of our school system. Through our continued partnership, we can foster a learning environment where all students can grow and succeed. Please visit our websites, Facebook page, and Youtube channel, for information throughout the year about all of the good things happening throughout our district. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your school principal or our central office staff.

    We look forward to a great school year, and we thank you for entrusting your child to the St. Bernard Parish Public Schools.
