Help JP Schools with Hurricane Ida Recovery

  • Since Hurricane Ida impacted our community, a number of individuals and organizations have expressed interest in supporting our recovery efforts. We are grateful for this outpouring of support for our students, employees, and families. There are different ways you can help support our children, employees, and families.


    Financial donations made to our school system will aid our students as we prepare to return to the classroom as soon as possible. All funds collected through our online form will go towards Hurricane Ida recovery. Some of the items your funds may support include student and educator school supplies, library books, school uniforms, musical instruments, and other essential items for school that may have been damaged or lost during the storm. We are grateful for your generosity to our students and schools.

    Many of you have asked about volunteering to clean up debris at schools. Clearing debris from the interior and exterior of our schools and administrative buildings is included in the scope of work of the professional contractors hired to restore our schools. While we are not accepting volunteers to help with clean-up at this time, we will be sure to keep you informed of volunteer opportunities.
