To our Arabi Elementary Families:
In response to the recent social media posting by one of our employees, please see the St. Bernard Parish School District’s statement below.
Since our inception, we have worked diligently to provide an inclusive environment for our beautifully diverse student body. We are deeply saddened that some of our Alligator families have been hurt by this post. The sentiment in the post in no way reflects the dedication and love our faculty and staff feel for ALL of our Alligators.
During this difficult time for our country and community, it is my sincere hope that we take this opportunity to grow in peace and understanding as an Arabi Elementary family.
We appreciate your continued support.
Carla Carollo, Principal of Arabi Elementary
