    IMPORTANT UPDATES

    Emergency MEALS-to-YOU PROGRAM

     

    With the extension of the Governor’s ‘Stay At Home’ mandate to April 30th, we have explored other means to provide meals to our students.  LaSalle Parish School Board is announcing a new program that will deliver meals to your doorstep for FREE. This program is called Meals-to-You, and it is a partnership between our district, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Baylor University.

     

    WHO QUALIFIES?

     

    To qualify for this program, your children have to attend one of our nine schools. Every other week, the Meals-to-You program will provide 10 breakfasts and 10 lunches per child for all children up to 18 years of age residing in your household.

     

    HOW DO I REGISTER?

     

    To receive these shelf stable meals, you must register on the Meals-to-You website as soon as possible. The meals will be provided on a first come, first serve basis.  Registration closes Monday, April 6, 2020.  Click on the link below and complete the simple online registration form:

    https://mealstoyou.org/emergency-meals-to-you-application/

     

    Parent/Guardian must provide:

    • an accurate current home address/NO PO Boxes
    • a contact phone number
    • an email address / to notify you of shipment status
    • the names of all children in their household that are 18 years or younger

     

    Most importantly, parents must provide permission to receive these meals.

     

    WHEN WILL MY CHILDREN BEGIN RECEIVING MEALS and FOR HOW LONG?

     

    After you register, it may be up to two weeks before the first box of meals arrives.  This program will continue until LaSalle Parish Schools reopen, or when the Child Nutrition staff can safely prepare meals and your children can safely eat at the sites providing meals.

    Parents,

    To assist you, we have the IXL Website Link, under Student Links, to the far left side of this webpage.  Your child’s first and last name (no uppercase letters or spaces) is their Username and their Password is abc. For parents without internet access, only, there will be a paper copy of an ELA page and a math page available for pickup, on Saturday, at the school.  It will be located in a plastic tub, on the bench, beside the handicapped parking space, at the end of the main building.  This work is optional, but is provided for additional practice. 

    Attention Parents:

    School Supply fees are $20.  This fee is to defray the cost of the notebooks, paper, pencils, etc., your child will use this year.   By paying this fee, your child will not be required to purchase and bring their own supplies.

    You can make a one-time payment of $20 directly to the school by cash or check.   This fee should be paid by Labor Day. However, the last possible day to pay the fee is November 30th.    Failure to pay the fees by that day may result in your child being excluded from certain activities, including field trips.   

    • To make special arrangements to pay this fee, please contact the school @ 495-5163.

    Rhonda Russell, Principal

    Unpaid Fee Collection

    If payments are not made by the due date, a request for payment will be made in writing stating the original deadline of the fee and give 5 school days from the date of the notice for the parent to pay the fee or submit an economic hardship waiver to the Principal.
