If you are moving during the school year, we encourage you to come to the school to register your child as soon as possible. We realize that adjustment to a new school during the school year is difficult, but the less your child's school year is disrupted by absence, the better. Ideally, your child should begin attending South Plaquemines Elementary School the next school day after he or she withdraws from the previous school.
Documents Required for Registration
Birth Certificate: Students must bring their birth certificate in order to register. The school will make a copy for the students's file.
Immunization: All students in grades K-12 must provide an immunization certificate at the time of enrollment.
Social Security Number: All students entering this school system are asked to provide to the school the student's Social Security number. This number will be used as the child’s student number throughout his or her years in school. Bring the original social security card and the school will make a copy.
Transfer Records: Students transferring into South Plaquemine Elementary School must provide a withdrawal form from the previous school and official notice from that school to verify grade placement at the time of withdrawal. The name and address of the previous school also need to be provided.
