    Principal's Corner

    December 18, 2020

    Dear Bulldog Families,                                                                                                                                                                                                        

    Back in November the St. Bernard Parish School Board approved a revised school calendar for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. As you all know, the students have missed 9 instructional days this year due to the delayed start and weather closures. The revisions to the school calendar recover the lost instructional time required by state law.

    One significant change is 14 minutes will be added to the school day starting on January 4th, 2021. Here at Lacoste, we will get out at 3:54 instead of 3:40 for the remainder of the year. Due to Covid, we do stagger our PM dismissal. The car rider doors will be opened at 3:45-3:50 as well as the doors to the walker areas. Buses will also be pushed back as our first round of buses will likely not leave the school until 3:50-3:55. Please plan accordingly so that your children are picked up on time daily.

    In addition to the added 14 minutes, students WILL now be in school on Tuesday, January 19th as well as April 1st and April 6th. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call the school or e-mail Mrs. Morel at hmorel

     Happy Holidays!

    Mrs. Morel
