MAY 8TH A.M. UPDATE

OFFICES OPENING TO PUBLIC IN LIMITED CAPACITY

Next week, offices that are normally open to the public, such as school offices and central offices, will be open Tuesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. Only lobby areas will be open, and recommended safety protocols and social distancing protocols will be maintained. This will provide an opportunity for items to be dropped off and to provide some in-person communication.

 

GRADUATION CEREMONY INFORMATION

Last week we released information regarding graduation ceremonies. If you missed it, you can find it here. Individual high schools will be sharing details very soon on how you can obtain your tickets. In addition, there are some items that will be addressed regarding the turf on the football field. No high heels will be allowed, as well as no food or drinks on the field other than water. Spectators/parents are not allowed on the field at any time, and confetti is also prohibited.

 

UPCOMING BOARD MEETING

The Calcasieu Parish School Board will be holding a meeting on Tuesday, May 12, at 5 p.m. As a result of current safety regulations still in place, board members may meet in person and electronically. Members of the public will not be permitted to be physically present, except those who wish to address the Board in person. We will have two different options for the public to participate. Please view the details and full agenda here.

 

SUMMER CARE/PROGRAMS

We are still receiving a lot of questions regarding summer care/programs. At this time, we cannot make a decision as to what those items may look like, as we do not know what safety regulations the Governor will still have in place and what the timeline for those may be. As soon as we are able to make a better informed decision about those items, we will share those details with the public.

 

CPSB JOB FAIR

The 2020 CPSB Job Fair scheduled for June 1 has been cancelled. We are hoping to make alternate plans in the near future, however our current job opportunities are always available here.

 

SMART BUSES

Based on data usage from this week, our mobile smart buses will remain at the same locations for now. You can view that location list here, as well as a list of other campuses with exterior Wi-Fi available.

 

OUT OF ZONE PERMITS

Out of Zone Permits are still available. It is strongly advised to request forms by sending an email to cwainfo@cpsb.org with your mailing address, number of forms needed, and if you live out of parish. Only one email is needed. If your email is “liked,” that is confirmation that it has been received and your form will be mailed in a timely manner. If your child was out of zone to the same school again this year, it is still active and no out of zone permit is needed.
