DONALDSONVILLE — With construction underway at two flood-damaged Ascension Parish public schools, with no word yet on federal reimbursement, the restoration project for a third school that flooded is ready to bid — if the school district can find the funds for it.
Included in this message: information about flood recovery, construction progress and website improvements
As we enter the Easter Holidays, I want to thank all of our students, teachers, staff, parents and the community for making a very challenging year, a successful one for Ascension Parish.
Galvez Middle School will return to its home campus on Monday, Mar. 13, 2017. The move-in date comes on the heels of a successful Fire Marshal inspection completed today.
Galvez Primary School will return to its home campus on Thursday, Mar. 2, 2017, after more than six months at host sites Lakeside Primary and the old RPCC campus. The move-in date comes after a successful follow-up Fire Marshal inspection today of the temporary buildings on its campus.
The Fire Marshal inspection of Galvez Primary's temporary buildings on Monday revealed one item that required additional attention. That item was addressed and corrected today, and the Fire Marshal is scheduled to return tomorrow at 1 p.m. for a final review.
Before we break for the holiday weekend, I would like to give you a quick update on the status of our flood recovery.
Yesterday, we celebrated the return of St. Amant High School to its campus in both a brand new freshman academy and temporary buildings. This was a major milestone in our district's flood recovery, and I am happy to report that everything ran very smoothly.
