Superintendent's Message: "We will get through this together."

JP Schools Family,

First and foremost, I hope you and your family are safe. As painful as it can be to lose belongings or a home, what matters most is the well being of the people we love. If you need support or resources, Jefferson Parish government has established a hurricane season dashboard at JeffParish.net/storm.

Hurricane Ida was a destructive force that impacted everyone who lives and works in Jefferson Parish. We saw this firsthand today while beginning to assess the damage. Now is the time to focus on the people in our lives and make sure they are okay.

We will remain in communications with employees and families throughout this process. Along with assessing our buildings, we want to understand where our people are, what supports they need, and what are the best steps forward as we rebuild, recover, and reopen.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. We will get through this together.

Dr. James Gray
