I hope everyone is well and adjusting to all of the temporary changes today brings. The following is new information from the District:
- LEARNING PACKETS: Printed learning packets for students in grades PK-12 are available this week at the Grab & Go sites. Packets will be distributed until they run out, any remaining packets may be consolidated and distributed only at specific sites later in the week.
- GRAB and GO: Beginning tomorrow, Wednesday (4/1), the 13 Grab and Go sites will be operated by an external organization.
- EMOTIONAL SUPPORT LINE: We recognize the significant impact that COVID-19 and the subsequent school closures are having on the emotional well being of many of our families and staff. To provide emotional support, our Student Support team created an Emotional Support Line for parents and staff members. Beginning tomorrow, March 31, experienced mental health professionals will be available via telephone to provide emotional support and share any pertinent resources during these difficult times. Parents of Jefferson Parish School students and staff members may call (504) 349-7629, Monday – Friday from 10am-1pm or between 4pm-6pm to speak to one of our trained mental health professionals. If students, staff, or families are in a life threatening situation, they should call 911.
If you have any questions, please email me. If I don't know the answer, I will try and get it for you.
