  • Update From the Superintendent

    November 19, 2020


    St. Bernard Parish School Board members approved the revised 2020-2021 school calendar at Tuesday night’s School Board Meeting.
    In an unprecedented year, students have missed a total of 9 instructional days thus far due to the delayed start and weather closures. The revisions to the school calendar recover the lost instructional time required by state law.
    School calendar changes will impact both our in-person and virtual learners.
    Calendar changes include:
    • 14 minutes added to the end of each school day: Beginning January 4 and for the remainder of the school year, an additional 14 minutes will be added to each school day.
    • School in Session on January 19: January 19 was originally a student holiday as teachers and staff reported for professional development. The calendar revision calls for January 19 to now be an instructional day and requires students to report to school on this date.
    • Easter Holiday Shortened: The Easter Holiday for students will be April 2-5. April 1 and April 6 will now be instructional days.
    District leaders and Board Members have worked tirelessly to develop a revised calendar that meets both the academic needs of our students and those of our families and staff. We thank you for your continued support.

    As always, stay well, stay informed, and stay connected.

  • Ring Day for the Class of 2021

    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.

  • Friday Night Under the Lights Returns

    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.
