Car Riders and Walkers—Students may arrive on campus beginning at 8:15 am. All car riders must follow the car rider line on the Corinne side of the building and be dropped off at the designated car rider location. Car riders and walkers must arrive by 8:30 am in order to eat breakfast.
WALKERS: If you DO NOT live in the “walk zone” your child will NOT be permitted to be a walker.
Parents will not be allowed to walk their child in the building.
All students can either report to the cafeteria to pick up a grab-n-go breakfast or report directly to their classrooms.
Getting Ready and School Safety:
Face coverings can be of any color or pattern but cannot contain writing or symbols which may be perceived as vulgar, profane, satanic, gang-related, violent, political, or tobacco, drug or alcohol-related. In accordance with our dress code, bandanas may not be worn as a face covering. The principal will make the final decision as to whether a face covering is acceptable.
First Day of School:
We will not have a School Supply night this year. We ask that parents send in school supplies over the first three days of school. Please make sure to send the pens, paper, notebooks, binders, etc. on the first day. You can send the other items on the second and third days.
Contact the school office at 304-5747 if you have moved. You will need to submit documentation for your new proof of residence.
If possible, we are asking that parents bring and pick their children daily. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we have limited seating on the buses and would like to reserve those spaces for students who have no other form of transportation.
Uniforms are required for all students. Please refer to the St. Bernard Parish Uniform Policy prior to purchasing school uniforms. Stores may advertise articles of clothing as “uniforms”; however, they may not meet the district uniform policy.
Your child’s homeroom teacher will call prior to school to gather important information such as PM transportation. Teachers and staff members will be directing students to the appropriate classrooms as they arrive on campus. Again, it would help if you have your child wear the enclosed information tag the first couple of days of school.
Please continue to monitor our district/school’s websites and Facebook pages for the most current and accurate information.
