Important Notice: All Buildings & Grounds Closed
Posted on 03/19/2020
Important InfoDuring the period of the closure occasioned by COVID-19, the Proclamation of the Governor, and the State of Public Health Emergency, the facilities of the St. James Parish School System are closed and there shall be no use thereof without the express consent of the Superintendent of St. James Parish Schools.  People will be allowed access to certain facilities when necessary to attend to work directed by the administration of the St. James Parish School System, to access meals, and for any authorized educational or administrative purposes.  Unfortunately, use of the buildings, fields and other facilities of the St. James Parish School System that has ordinarily been afforded to students and members of the general public is, at this time, prohibited.  The guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and the limitations on the size of gatherings by the Governor necessitates that the facilities of the St. James Parish School System only be utilized as required for limited purposes.  As the owner of these facilities, the St. James Parish School System is obligated to ensure that the gathering size limitations are enforced.  Finally, beyond the legally mandated gathering size, there is additional guidance that it is safer for our community if people avoid gatherings in excess of 10 people.  The St. James Parish School Board urges the people of St. James Parish to cooperate and comply with these limitations, in an effort to stem the spread of COVID-19, so that we can get our community back to normalcy sooner rather than later.  The administration and staff of the St. James Parish School System are dedicated to doing whatever it takes to see our community through this pandemic and make a brighter future for St. James Parish, the State of Louisiana, and the United States of America.
