COVID-19 UPDATE: 4/2/2020
Posted on 04/02/2020

The health and safety of our families remain the top priorities of the district.  As a district, we are dedicated to all our students, families and community.  We will come back strong and are making plans for ALL our students.  


Seniors and families, we are working diligently to ensure all who are in line to graduate will still get a diploma and receive the recognition deserved. Louisiana Department of Education guidance for seniors was released today, Thursday, April 2, 2020 to districts.  We are in the process of integrating this information into district procedures and guidelines and will provide district specific information next week.


We are also working behind the scenes to develop additional learning options for all students.  Because accessibility capabilities of students vary throughout the district, resources will be offered online and in print.  We do recommend all students work from home to keep skills sharp and lessen the potential for regression. Updates to learning resources will be provided on April 14, 2020. 


We appreciate your patience and trust as we plan for all students in St. James during these challenging times.
