Our Principal, Mr. Samuel Baynes, is retiring after 20 years in the field of education. Mr. Baynes is originally from Cleveland, Ohio, but has lived in Lake Charles for the last 20 years. Before joining the field of education, he was the Vice President of Alcoa Engineering Products. Mr. Baynes wanted a chance to make a difference in the lives of youth, so he became an educator. He taught at Lake Charles Boston, and then moved to LaGrange High School. During his time in education, he taught Social Studies for five years; then became an Administrator. When asked what he plans to do during retirement, he stated “I plan to stay involved and help the community in the field of education through consulting, running for school board, and also playing some golf.” Best wishes to Mr. Baynes on your retirement!

TECHNOLOGY UPDATES CPSB will soon be rolling out 12 school buses equipped with mobile Wi-Fi throughout the district in an effort to provide free Wi-Fi to any staff, students or community members that are in need. The buses will be spread throughout the district and Wi-Fi usage data will be used to determine if a bus needs to relocate. We ask that you maintain the social distancing protocol while using these Wi-Fi hotspots by parking near the bus but staying in your vehicle at all times. Once these buses are dispersed, we will be sharing locations with the public.
