 If students are able to log onto Google Classroom please have them complete assignments.  If they are unable to do so for any reason including not having a device at home, the teacher will give further instructions to make up assignments when they return.   All after-school activities and Winter Performance will also be canceled. A video will be sent out at a later date.  Classes will resume Thursday, December 15, 2022.  

This decision was made in conjunction with the St. James Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness.
