Governor John Bel Edwards has extended his March Stay at Home Order issued through APRIL 30. As a result, St. Martin Parish Schools will continue to be closed until that time. We will continue to update you on our website, through calls and on our district Facebook page as further guidance is issued. Check out school Facebook and websites as well for more information specific to your child's school.
In response to the current COVID-19 event, pursuant to La. R.S. 23:184.1 the Louisiana Workforce Commission (LWC) will begin issuing sixty (60) day blanket Employment Certificates for employers desiring to employ minors in the State of Louisiana. Employment Certificates issued due to this event shall expire sixty (60) days from the date of issuance. Upon expiration, employers will be required to obtain Employment Certificates as required pursuant to La. R.S. 23:181 et. seq.
Employers desiring to obtain an Employment Certificate pursuant to this memorandum must submit a completed and signed “Application to Employ Minors under 18” along with proof of age to email@example.com. The application can be downloaded from the Louisiana Workforce Commission’s website or by copying and pasting the following web address into your web browser: http://www.laworks.
When the application has been approved, the employer will be notified via email from the LWC Office of Workforce Development. The names of those minors who are approved to work pursuant to the Employment Certificate will also be attached to the email. As indicated, blanket Employment Certificates are effective for a maximum of sixty (60) days. Blanket Employment Certificates are not transferable. Certificates are required to be kept at the minor’s work location.
Any questions or concerns regarding this memorandum should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Free Online Learning Sites
Parents, the term “summer slide” refers to students regressing or forgetting some information learned during the school year while out of school for the summer months. In an effort to reduce the opportunity for regression/slide due to the current school closures mandated by Governor Edwards, St. Martin Parish has provided a list of free online resources for parents to use with students. Students will not receive grades on the online practice work completed, but with the possibility of testing still taking place upon their return, it is important to keep students actively engaged in learning during this mandated closure. To access the list of free online learning sites, please click here. To request your child's username and password for iReady, please email Ms. Kellie LeBlanc at email@example.com.
Virtual Tutor for EOC Courses
All high school students currently enrolled in EOC courses could continue to practice their coursework through Edgenuity Virtual Tutor courses. To access the courses, please email Ms. Kellie LeBlanc at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Virtual Learning Program
Since we cannot have weekly testing at this time, all Virtual Learning students can stop working on their coursework until later notice or until school resumes.
