Most Recent Kerner Update: June 10, 2022

  • Dear Kerner Elementary School Family, 

    I have often stated that the key to our recovery efforts would be continuous communication. With this in mind, the following message is part of the monthly communication update that will be sent from me to you on where we are in the recovery process at your school.

    This morning, a special board meeting was held to increase the level of funding for repairs to the school campus due to rising economical costs. As a proactive measure, and in an effort to avoid future delays, our board approved additional funding of $3,477,818 which   increases our chances of meeting our anticipated timeline to reopen the campus. As of now, the architect’s drawings are near completion, and we still anticipate work beginning on the campus in late August or early September. 

    Your continued patience and flexibility is greatly appreciated. I am certain that as we continue to work together while we navigate the tides of this recovery process, our campus, school, and community will be stronger and more unified than ever. The next update will be provided on Wednesday, July 6 and remember to visit jpschools.org/LafitteReturn for your school’s hurricane recovery updates. 

     

     Dr. James Gray
