Coming together in challenging times is what the LaPlace community does. We are an interconnected community based on family and resiliency. While our traditional in-person 8th-grade promotional celebration has been canceled, we are coming together as an LES family and preparing to virtually celebrate our 2019-2020 eight graders. On Friday, May 22, 2020, at 11:00 a.m., we will hold a virtual promotional exercise via Microsoft Teams.
What to Expect
The celebration for about 60 eighth-graders will feature pictures from various activities and events held during this school year, inspiring comments from administration, congratulatory messages from staff members, and promotion acknowledgments.
How to Prepare
The virtual celebration will be broadcasted through Microsoft Teams. The Team’s link will be sent out soon via the school’s website, Remind, and other communication avenues. The virtual celebration access link will be active on Friday, May 22nd, beginning at 10:15 am. The promotional exercise will promptly begin at 11:00 am. It is imperative that students and parents access the link prior to the beginning of the promotional exercise at 11:00 am. We would like to problem-solve any technical issues before we begin at 11:00 am so that everyone can experience the celebration. If there are any technical difficulties that occur, please contact Mr. Lewis, Mrs. Poche, or Mrs. Sentmore for assistance via email or Teams Chat.

Louisiana anticipates being approved for the new Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program. To receive these benefits, families must be notified of the benefits and must complete an application. The portal will launch May 18, 2020. This program will provide extra help buying groceries for the families who normally receive free and reduced-price meals at school.
