In the mornings both Crowder Blvd. and Hayne Blvd. are used for drop-offs. The Hayne Blvd. entrance will open for 7:00 A.M., and the Crowder Blvd. gate will open at 8:00 A.M. and close at 8:23 A.M.

Parents living to the east of the school must approach from Hayne Blvd. – not Crowder Blvd. If you live west of the school, please use the Crowder Blvd. drop-off area. DO NOT MAKE A U-TURN FROM CROWDER INTO THE FRONT ENTRANCE GATE BETWEEN 7:30 A.M. – 9:00 A.M AND 2:00 P.M. – 3:15 P.M.

All students must be in class no later than 8:25 A.M. All students arriving after this time must be signed in with the office by their parent. FOUR TARDIES PER QUARTER WILL RESULT IN A DETENTION.

NEW ATTENDANCE RULE: AS PER LOUISIANA STATE POLICY, ONLY 10 ABSENCES ARE ALLOWED PER SCHOOL YEAR. Parents must write a note upon the student’s return to school after an absence. An absence of 3 days or more requires a note from the doctor.

If your child is in Grade 3 or below, the form below or a facsimile must be completed in duplicate. Mail one copy to the school, and please see to it that your child wears the other on his or her person through September 15. No one will be accepted without this information on his or her clothing. In order for your child to be directed to the proper room in the morning and ushered to the correct P.M. area in the afternoon, it is of paramount importance that you adhere to the aforementioned.
