VISION • EFFORT • SUCCESS
January 22, 2021
I hope this message continues to find you well. We have officially begun the second semester of the school year. In a year unlike any other, I continue to be encouraged by the work our students, families, teachers, and staff do each and every day.
We have two important updates to the recent calendar changes we shared in December:.
As we continue to navigate this health crisis, please stay vigilant in practicing safety measures: mask wearing, social distancing, washing of hands, etc. As a reminder, if a student tests positive for COVID-19 or is a close contact to someone who has, please contact your child’s school principal immediately.
Thank you for your patience and trust during this time as we continue to navigate the challenging circumstances and do what is best for our students and families. As always, please reach out to your child’s principal if you have any questions or concerns.

It was a different venue but the same time-honored traditions that were celebrated when Chalmette High School hosted its annual Ring Day for the Class of 2021. Held on the field of Bobby Nuss Stadium, over 350 seniors took part in this ceremony which marked their first milestone towards graduation.
Whether it was pasta with a purpose, free dress days, or fried fish for friends in need, schools throughout St. Bernard Parish School District have continued to raise money and awareness for communities impacted by the devastation of Hurricane Laura.
The CHS Fighting Owls football team finally returned to the field on October 2 for their season opener and annual rival game against Holy Cross School at Bobby Nuss Stadium. While the team came up short on the scoreboard, the night was one of small victories in reclaiming Owl pride and normalcy in the face of Covid19 restrictions.
