Parents if you are residing with a relative and/or friend temporarily or permanently you are required to complete an affidavit verifying place of residence. Please keep in mind that an affidavit is only valid for one school year, and needs to be resubmitted before the start of the next school year. If an affidavit is not submitted, your child will not be enrolled for the 2019 – 2020 School Year.  If the parent and/or student is in fact not residing in the parish, the student will be required to return to the school where he/she resides.  Please see the link below for the official St. James Parish Schools Affidavit for Place of Residence.  Along with the affidavit, please submit (2) proofs of residency in the resident’s name showing their address.  Acceptable forms of identification are listed below:
