Chalmette Elementary School


  • Letter from the Principal


    Dear Parents:


    We are anxious to welcome your children back to school in August! Our staff, in conjunction with school district personnel, have been busy developing procedures to make the reopening of our school campus as safe as possible. Social distancing, intact groupings of homeroom students, wearing of masks by all staff members and students in Grades 3 – 5, frequent handwashing and wiping down of surfaces, and education of our students in the importance of individual responsibility will be a part of our daily protocol.


    Within our school environment, teachers are preparing warm, inviting classrooms for our students. While students will remain in their assigned areas of the classroom for instruction, learning will be creative and interactive. There will be outdoor recess time built into the schedule to allow homeroom classes to interact and socialize among themselves. P.E., art, and music classes will also offer students an opportunity to develop physically and creatively as well as academically.


    Our district leadership constantly monitors the latest guidance issued by the medical community, and will continue to implement the latest recommendations for best practices in order to maintain the safest environment possible. Please refer to the district and school websites frequently to stay abreast of any changes that may be necessitated by state or local mandates. You may also ask questions via our school Facebook page, or email me directly at

    Remember, at CES we are Viking Strong!


    Elizabeth K. Winslow
