Most Recent Fisher Update

    Fisher Middle-High Family,

    I’m writing to you with our monthly update. We know how important athletics are to the Fisher and Lafitte community, and we have been working diligently to make stadium repairs to allow for a sense of normalcy for our students, families, and community members. We are excited that after months of work, we are prepared to host the football game this Saturday at Fisher. With inclement weather anticipated Saturday, we will continue to monitor the forecast and keep the Fisher community informed should plans change.

    We are still awaiting a decision on what will be covered by FEMA reimbursement, and we took the proactive step in October to approve an architect/engineer for Fisher Middle-High School design. We have weekly meetings with FEMA and continue to advocate for an answer as soon as possible about rebuilding the permanent Fisher campus.

    While the end goal is to have Fisher Middle-High back at your Lafitte campus, we are preparing the West Bank Community campus for students, staff, and families. We received authorization yesterday from local officials to begin interior repairs, and our contractor will begin work on those repairs now. While we were awaiting authorization, the contractor has been busy with exterior renovations, including painting the buildings and waterproofing the roof. 

    We will continue to keep you informed about the recovery progress, and the next update will be provided the week of December 5. Thank you for your continuous support and understanding as we move forward for our students and our Lafitte community.

    Dr. James Gray
