Hello, Eagle Family!
Oh how we have missed you! We have been working all summer to get our building fully ready for our students, and after all these weeks of planning and preparing, I'm thrilled that our doors will open to welcome our Eagles HERE at SBM for what will surely be a memorable school year. (:
As you probably already know, last Friday, St. Bernard Parish School District released a district-wide plan for the 2020-2021 Year. This plan detailed the physical, environmental, and wellness standards under which we will operate. There, you can read that we will be able to provide the top education you've come to expect from St. Bernard Public Schools while also meeting all health and wellness guidelines outlined by the school district and state officials. If you're not yet familiar with that information, I suggest starting there before reading ahead.
In the past years, we have been able to host a back to school night. Unfortunately, this is not an option given the current guidelines, However, my staff and I are currently working on a "virtual" version of this. Soon, this will be uploaded to our school's website. When this information is available, it can be found at www.sbpsb.org/StrongStartSBM.
Until then, to prepare for the beginning of the school year, you can find important information such as school supply lists, dress code and attendance policies by visiting www.sbpsb.org/StrongStart2020. As of now, the basic information for the start of school includes:
When students arrive on the first day wearing fresh uniforms including the latest requirement, a cloth face covering, they will have the option to pick up a breakfast (all students are eligible for free breakfast and lunch); then, students will report directly to their homeroom class where they will have their temperature checked, eat breakfast, meet their teacher, and get their schedules. During the week of August 3, students and families should expect a phone call from your child's homeroom teacher. He or she will provide the basic information needed for day 1.
Thank you for your continued support and trust as we navigate this situation. As always, please reach out if you have any questions or concerns. The creative minds and caring hearts of SBM's educators, students, and parents will make this year one of our absolute best. Together, we will be successful. "One School. One Family."
Mrs. Angela D. Seibert
