2020-2021 School Supply Lists

Parents/Guardians, School supply lists are located on the website under the Parent Resources tab. Students who are enrolled in virtual learning will need their school supplies as well. These students will be assigned work that will be graded. I will set up a time for parents to come to school to pick up all workbooks, texts, and math resources that students will need to complete their virtual instruction. As it gets closer to school, I will follow up with dates and times.

Back to School Survey

Parents/Guardians, Please remember to complete the Registration Commitment survey that pertains to school in August. This survey will help us to determine who will need virtual instruction as opposed to on campus instruction. Seats on the bus are limited, so please respond by Friday, July 3rd. All you have to do is click the link below, and answer the questions. Thank you for your time. Your response is critical to the decisions that we will make in order to move forward.

Need Help Coping?

Parents/Guardians, Do you need materials to help your child(ren) cope during these stressful and uncertain times? Please check out the links found under the Counselor's Corner. The Counselor's Corner can be located by clicking on the Academics tab.

Principal's Message

April 16, 2020
As Governor John Bel Edwards ordered schools closed for the remainder of the school year, we cannot help but feel like the school year ended like a cliffhanger.  Ideally we would have completed all of our end of the year rituals prior to the closing of school.  However, out of the abundance of caution, the decision to close schools was deemed necessary for the safety of our children, our faculty and staff, and our community.  Despite the onset of Covid-19, we had a dynamite year filled with myriad accomplishments, experiences, and family events- memories that will be greatly cherished. Our students were blessed with numerous field trips, Pelicans Camp, Principal's Parties, ST Math Night, Math/Science, and Technology Night, Read Night, Pumpkin Patch, Mardi Gras parade, Robotics Competition, Jr. Beta Convention, etc. Academically, we adopted a new Tier I curriculum- Wit and Wisdom for grades 3-6, implemented LEAP tutoring, Power Hour Interventions, as well as Saturday tutoring.  We utilized all resources at our disposal to prepare your child(ren) academically, and certainly we were excited about the prospects of the students demonstrating growth. With that being said, despite the inability to physically attend the halls of South Plaquemines Elementary, we encourage our students to continue the work that we started. We will continue to provide support to you and your child(ren). Also, we have uploaded a list of resources under the Counselor's Corner to help you as you teach your child(ren) how to cope. To access the Counselor's Corner, click on the Academics tab on the homepage.  If you are in need of additional support, please let us know. 
As a reminder, please make sure that you stay tuned to announcements that Superintendent Rousselle will release through School Messenger in regards to moving forward. 
With warmest regards,
Dr. Stacey-Ann Barrett
