Welcome, Parents ::..
A child’s education is one of the most important concerns parents have, and good information about schools is important to parents living in the community and those relocating to the area. The School System offers numerous information sources, including the System Web site, which is designed to provide timely, factual information about the System and schools. Parents are encouraged to visit the Web site frequently and take advantage of the other information sources mentioned throughout the site.
In St. Tammany public schools, we value the confidence and support parents give us in our efforts to provide students a high-quality education in a caring environment for learning. We also value the tremendous parental involvement in our schools, which underpins the success of our students and School System. Parents are encouraged to take an active role in the partnership between home and school.
Good communication is an important component of that partnership. School and School System officials welcome questions and input from parents and offer many opportunities for parents to become involved in decision affecting schools.
Bus Transportation Hot Line To Begin August 5
To help parents get information about school bus routes for the 2013-2014 school year, a “Transportation Hot Line” will again be offered by the St. Tammany Parish Public School System before the start of school. The Hot Line will be open Monday, August 5, through Friday, August 9, and the following Monday, August 12, and Tuesday, August 13. The hours will be from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. The telephone number for the Hot Line is 985.898.3373. Parents can call the Hot Line to get the name and contact information for their children’s bus drivers, which will allow them to call drivers to find out bus stop locations and pick-up and drop-off times.
Communications Services Offered
An informative e-newsletter that will be sent out periodically is now available to parents. The e-newsletter service will offer up-to-date information about events and programs of interest to the St. Tammany Parish Public School System parents and employees. Scheduled to be sent out quarterly, the news articles will focus on exciting programs happening within our schools and important dates and information for parents and community members.
