Message from the Superintendent

  • Message from the Superintendent


    The safety of our schools and the wellbeing of our students are of paramount importance.  Over the past week, the St. Bernard Parish School administrators have been working closely with Sheriff Jimmy Pohlmann and his detectives to address several instances where students have made statements which could be perceived as threats.

    In each instance, parents were notified, the incident was reported to the Sheriff’s department, and a thorough investigation was conducted by the detectives of the Criminal Investigations Bureau.  The school system will continue to partner with the Sheriff’s department and notify all parents if there are any credible threats. The Sheriff’s department is stressing a zero tolerance policy and has arrested several students for making verbal threats, even though the students may have indicated that they are only “joking.”

    Parents, please help us by speaking with your children about the gravity of their words and what the consequences could be.  We, in conjunction with the Sheriff’s department,  are holding assemblies with all of our middle and upper elementary school students to stress the seriousness of the situation.  Students at the high school have already been addressed.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s principal.


    Doris Voitier

    Superintendent of St. Bernard Parish Schools
