Option 2: In K12 Virtual School. This is the same virtual option offered in the past. Students on this option can enter or exit the option only at the first of the school year and/or mid-term.

Option 3: In a virtual classroom with their local teacher. These students will be assigned to a regular classroom but will receive their instruction completely virtually from their local teacher. Students on this option may return to the in-person classroom at any point during the year.

To choose Option 2 or Option 3, please email COVID19@catahoulaschools.com and include the student's name, school, grade, parent's name, contact phone number, and if the family has internet access or will need a MiFi device.

New Immunization Requirements

Effective July 1, 2019, Louisiana law requires all students entering the 11th grade or those who are 16 years old in any grade, to provide proof of current immunization meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV) against meningococcal disease as a condition of school entry. This is an additional requirement on top of the requirement for students in 6th grade or those 11 years old. This means that two doses are now required. This new requirement came from the passage of 2018 Regular Session House Bill 176. Revised Statute 17:170E continues to allow exemption from this requirement for medical reasons or written statement of dissent.

If you have any questions, please contact the Catahoula Parish School Nurse, Brandy Montpelier, at the Central Office.



Online Safety

The Parents’ Guides to Student Success were developed by teachers, parents and education experts in response to the Common Core State Standards that more than 45 states have adopted. Created for grades K-8 and high school English, language arts/literacy and mathematics, the guides provide clear, consistent expectations for what students should be learning at each grade in order to be prepared for college and career. A link to this information will be on our webpage under the "Parents" tab.
